Kirby’s Undirty Dozen won first place in the Southwest Regional Drive Smart Challenge. The group participated in an 8 week program which included activities such as teaching classes, radio advertisement, presentation from the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, drunk driving simulation and observation surveys. The goal of the project was to decrease the number of drivers who used their cell phones and/or didn’t use their seat belt and promote safe driving habits to all drivers and passengers. Undirty Dozen was presented with a check for $1100 and a glass trophy.

Providing an excellent education to all Arkansas students is of the utmost importance, and many schools are implementing innovative programs to inspire student success. To better assist schools with providing the best education possible, the Arkansas Department of Education is launching the Arkansas Comprehensive School Improvement Planning (ACSIP) statewide field test during the 2015-2016 year.
The new program allows district and school leadership teams to collaborate to determine best practices and areas for improvement, in addition to developing strategies for meeting short-term and long-term goals. It also gives schools an opportunity to receive feedback from ADE throughout the entire year. Providing the best education possible requires effort, collaboration, and innovative strategies.
The schools will begin work on the plans October 6, 2015. Please remember the teams are working on the plans throughout the school year, so they will change. Please follow along as the schools create their improvement plans towards student academic success. Also, remember that your suggestions and feedback are welcome. CLICK ON ACSIP LINK BELOW.
