Arkansas’ ESSA plan provides a transparent reporting system through the School Performance Reports. ESSA scores are calculated from the previous school year. Each school is assigned an ESSA Overall Index Score based on indicators that measure achievement and growth, school quality and student success, and graduation rate for high school. The school quality and student success measures include absenteeism rate.
Schools are assigned a letter grade (A, B, C, D, F) to correlate with the Overall Index Score. These reports help schools in targeting and improving learning and provide stakeholders with a clear picture of how each school is performing.
Bryant Public Schools celebrates all A and B ratings for our schools. We recognize success comes from the hard work, commitment, and support from our great students, teachers, parents, and community!

Ten of our eleven schools reached a growth score of 80 or more, indicating that most students made expected growth. We are extremely proud of these scores and the progress our schools have made but remain focused on continual improvement.
(Note: Parkway Elementary has a School Performance Report for the first time based on scores from 2018-19, it’s opening year. Bryant Junior High will not receive a Performance Report until scores are calculated for the 2019-20 school year.)
The district has set measured goals for all schools in Our Plan for Success, centering on academic and personal growth for each student. Each of our schools has a School Improvement Plan to improve the level of student achievement.
The EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT (ESSA), our nation’s education law, gives individual states flexibility to develop systems to best measure student success. Arkansas’ ESSA plan targets Academic Standards and Assessments, Accountability, School Support, English Learners, and Teacher Effectiveness. The Division of Elementary & Secondary Education (formerly the Arkansas Department of Education) has provided information to help stakeholders understand how school performance is measured.
Together, we will continue working toward our vision of being the state’s premier provider of education.
