ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

Beginning with the 2008-2009 school year, all school districts must offer one AP course in each of the four core areas of math, English, science, and social studies. Each school district must annually report to the state board of education the number of students taking AP or IB courses, the number taking the AP exams, and the percent of students scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on AP exams. The Arkansas Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Diploma Incentive Program awards schools grants for equipment, instructional materials, and teacher training for AP programs, and the cost of the AP or IB test fees. Arkansas also assists small, rural public schools in providing students access to the most rigorous courses available by permitting students to take AP courses in the place of regular courses. The Department of Education also provides grants for distance learning to assist school districts in offering AP courses and other academic courses not otherwise available in the school district. Arkansas law defines concurrent enrollment as the enrollment of a high school student in postsecondary education for high school credit and college credit. A concurrent enrollment course must meet the same standards as courses taught on the college campus, using substantially the same book and syllabus. An instructor of a concurrent enrollment course must have a master's degree that includes at least 18 hours of completed course work in the subject area of the concurrent enrollment course. To be eligible for enrollment, a student must have completed eighth grade, be admitted by the institution of higher education as a non-degree or non-certificate seeking student, and meet all of the prerequisites for the course in which he or she is enrolled. The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board sets further policy guidelines for concurrent enrollment courses. Arkansas law defines a Tech-Prep education program as a combined secondary and postsecondary program that leads to an associate of applied science or other occupational degree or two-year certificate; provides technical preparation; builds student competence in mathematics, science, and communication; and leads to placement in employment. The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the State Board of Workforce Education and Career Opportunities jointly award grants for Tech-Prep education programs. (Last updated 2008)

ADULT LEARNERS

The Arkansas Department of Career Education administers several adult education programs such as Adult Basic Education courses, GED preparation courses and test administration, English language classes for individuals whose native language is not English, the Correctional Education Program in which inmates can take courses and receive a GED, family literacy courses, and the Workforce Alliance for Growth in the Economy Program which offers academic and job skills instruction to unemployed and underemployed Arkansans. In 2012, the Arkansas State Board of Career Education approved and published new "Standards of a Quality Adult Education Program" for adult education programs in the state. The State Board of Career Education is advised by the Arkansas Workforce Investment Board and Adult Education Study Committee. According to state statute (Ark. Stat. Ann. ?25-30-103), the State of Arkansas and school districts are allowed to spend available tax funds on adult education below college level. (Last updated 2013).

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

Numerous pieces of legislation passed in Arkansas deal with the issue of transfer and articulation. The Roger Phillips Transfer Act, passed in 2009, allows students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree to transfer those courses and be admitted as a junior to any public four-year institution in the state. State law also requires the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board (AHECB) to create comprehensive, statewide transfer policies with a minimum general education core curriculum that is fully transferable among public postsecondary institutions in the state. Legislation also directs the AHECB to maintain the Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS), an electronically based student guide that provides up-to-date course information and facilitates transfer and articulation between state institutions. State law similarly requires the Arkansas Department of Higher Education to provide institutional performance data - including transfer rates - to the legislature through the Arkansas Higher Education Performance Reporting System. The state's minimum general education core requirements in A.A., A.S., or B.A. programs are 35 semester hours distributed across English composition, speech communication, math, science, humanities, and social sciences. Arkansas also recently passed legislation requiring public four-year institutions to develop transfer guidelines and an advising tool that outlines courses which will prepare two-year students for entry into a baccalaureate program.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

Public colleges and universities in Arkansas are required to collect and annually report to the governor, legislature and institutional boards of trustees, data on retention and graduation rates of students. They are also charged with reporting the number of students who required remediation during their first year of enrollment in a public institution of higher education in the state, if the enrollment occurred within two years of high school graduation, and the total direct and indirect costs of all remediation courses delivered the previous academic year.

EARLY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

Arkansas has a number of initiatives geared toward helping students prepare better for college. However, at the state level, Arkansas does not have a single, recognized state-level pre-college outreach policy with goals and strategies nor a systematic way to identify and target students, collect student data across segments, allocate funds, evaluate programs, and report data. Arkansas' Challenge Scholarship requires completion of a minimum core curriculum. The Transition Math course is a fourth unit of math designed as a capstone course to build upon Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry and help prepare high school students for college Algebra. Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.), an ADHE coordinated program focused on reducing the state's high school drop-out rate, also works to provide students with a better understanding of the benefits of higher education and expose students to the curricular and extracurricular activities found on a college campus. Y.O.U. targets underprivileged youth, providing them with basic skill review and a first job experience. The four-year follow-up program provides continuity and support for Y.O.U. graduates, as well as longitudinal data for program accountability.

FINANCE

The tuition rate for each four-year institution is determined by the board of trustees. This board fixes a scale of matriculation and tuition fees, in reasonable sums. A student should be classified as an in-state resident for tuition purposes only if his or her legal residence is located in Arkansas and intends to make Arkansas his or her permanent home. Arkansas' intent is to make technical and community college programs available to as many citizens as possible, and as a result, tuition and fees are to be maintained at a reasonable level so as not to exclude citizens because of cost. The local board determines the minimum in-district and out-of-district student tuition and fees for these institutions. Students residing outside a community college district may be subject to extra tuition and fees. Arkansas provides tuition waivers to individuals 60 years of age and older and World War I veterans, as well as dependents of disabled veterans, prisoners of war, or disabled police officers. The Arkansas National Guard Scholarship program has been repealed; however, up to twenty-five percent of tuition costs may be waived by the institution for Arkansas National Guard soldiers and airmen. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

REMEDIAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION

Arkansas state colleges and universities are required to assess students' readiness for college-level instruction. The Higher Education Coordinating Board has selected a common assessment and cut score for course placement. Legislation enacted in 2011 directed the Board to determine criteria beyond tests for remedial education placement and to set minimum criteria and assessment scores for students to enroll simultaneously in remedial and college-level courses. Arkansas has established and continues to expand policies for assessing students in middle and high school to determine if they are on track to be college ready, and to intervene if necessary. The state also has developed comprehensive data reporting requirements for remedial education. Legislation enacted in 2011 required the Department of Higher Education to phase-in a performance-based funding formula for all institutions to improve student success measures. Further, the funding model is intended to address the quality of instruction and student learning, including for remedial education. (Prepared by Mary Fulton, Education Commission of the States, 2012)

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

"The Arkansas Department of Higher Education administers various merit, grant and loan programs. The state's merit programs include the Academic Challenge Scholarship, which combines financial need with academic achievement, and the Governor's Scholars Program. Arkansas has a Second Effort scholarship program to encourage students who did not finish high school to complete their GED and continue on to an Arkansas postsecondary school or college. For the 2005-2006 academic year, Arkansas appropriated 20,868 million for need-based aid and 10,945 million for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)"

TEACHING QUALITY

Arkansas began implementing teaching quality reform initiatives on several fronts a decade ago, after the development of a Title II Teacher Quality Enhancement Grant was coordinated by the Department of Education and the Higher Education Coordinating Board. Many of these reforms focused on teacher preparation and greater coordination through the state's P-16 Partnership Task Force and its nine local P-16 Councils. Arkansas has also developed a mentoring system to help graduates make the transition into teaching, adopting Education Testing Services' Pathwise mentor training program. Arkansas has also focused on teacher pay incentives to recruit and retain teachers in hard-to-staff schools and subjects through bonuses and performance incentives. In 2007, Arkansas provided bonuses for STEM teachers and created the "Rewarding Excellence in Achievement Program," a pilot program allowing school districts and public charter schools the opportunity to provide compensation incentives to recruit and retain teachers and encourage them to improve their knowledge and instructional skills in order to improve student learning.
