The Arkansas Department of Education has released a commissioner’s memo that provides clarification of Title I Methodology test submission requirements.
The new guidance states that the following LEAs are excluded from the Methodology Test submission requirement:
- Single School LEAs (K-12) LEA
- LEAs with only one school per grade span
- LEAs in which all schools are Title I participating.
Districts that are excluded will be required to submit a Supplement, Not Supplant Demonstration of Compliance letter. Click here to download the letter.
All LEAs will be required to upload either a Demonstration of Compliance letter or their chosen Title I Methodology into Indistar by October 15, 2018.
The deadline has been extended to give districts time to get the required signatures.
A copy of the Demonstration of Compliance letter and methodology examples are attached to the memo. Click here to access methodology examples.
