Annual School Performance Report Cards: Pottsville Schools
ESEA Accountability AMO Status: All schools in the Pottsville School District are fully accredited through the Arkansas Department of Education. Pottsville School District continues to meet Average Yearly Progress as required by the Arkansas Department of Education for benchmark and EOC testing scores. The target Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for Pottsville School District and our schools have been set at high levels because of our consistently high student performance. Consequently, Pottsville School District is classified as a Needs Improvement District (AMO target in graduation rate and math). Pottsville High School and Pottsville Junior High Schools are classified as Achieving Schools. Pottsville Middle Grades is classified as a Needs Improvement School (AMO target in math) and Pottsville Elementary School is classified as a Needs Improvement School (AMO target in Literacy). According to ADE, a "Needs Improvement" status should not be associated with school improvement status. It simply means the school missed one or more targets (as indicated) under the new accountability system. School leaders and teachers are analyzing the data to find out which students are not making their gains and developing teaching and learning strategies to help each student achieve.
