Dear Parents, Families and Community Members:
Every year, each public school and district in Arkansas receives a Report Card. Just as each student’s report card shows his/her progress in specific subjects, the School Report Card shows how our school is performing in different areas. This user-friendly information is available at https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov/
The goal of the Report Card is to provide transparent and accessible information to parents, families, and the community all in one place. It provides a holistic way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, growth, graduation rate, teacher quality, school environment, and so much more. The Report Card has been improved by the addition of more subgroups of students, such as students in foster care and students with parents on active military duty, to ensure that every student is considered in school planning efforts.
We know that the report card is just one of many ways you will engage with us at Bismarck School District, and we are grateful for your continued support. We are proud that our report card shows all A’s on all three campuses for three years in a row.
Parents, families, and the community are all valuable partners in the success of our students. As you read the School Report Card, consider how our school is doing in each indicator and get a sense of where our school is strong and where our school could engage in specific efforts to improve so that each child is succeeding at the highest level. We, along with the Arkansas Department of Education, have high expectations for “leading the nation in student-focused education,” and we look forward to working together toward that vision each day.
If you have questions about the Report Card, please visit the My School Info website https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov to find more information, definitions of terms, videos which explain how the site works, and answers to frequently asked questions. If you would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to know more about the information in our school report card, please contact us at 501-865-4888.
