Conway District and Curriculum
Conway Public Schools uses an instructional plan based on the Common Core Standards, and which is monitored by the Arkansas Department of Education. The Department of Education also requires Arkansas’ schools to participate in mandatory testing. The Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment, and Accountability Program (ACTAAP) includes the Smart Start Initiative, for grades K-4, the Smart Step Initiative, for grades 5-8, and subject examinations for grades 9-12. Since 2010, students who are enrolled in Algebra I must pass an End of Course Examination. Beginning in 2013-2014, students who are enrolled in English II must pass an End of Course Examination. In addition to the required assessments from the Arkansas Department of Education, Conway Public Schools uses The Learning Institute Interim Assessments to assess student progress and prepare the students for the state tests. These additional assessments are given in grades 1-12. Finally, the Arkansas Department of Education is collaborating with other states to develop assessments for the Common Core Standards.

Chalk Talk: Teaching Children to Care About Others
It is important that children learn to help other people. Children must be taught to care not only about themselves, but also about others. Here are some suggestions for creating caring children: 1) Have children care for a pet. This will help them learn to be gentle, which is an important quality, 2) Encourage your child to help others when they are injured or upset. Praise your child for caring about others. 3) Find a way for your family to volunteer to help others. Prepare food or visit a nursing home, 4) When a natural disaster or tragedy occurs, work with your family to help, by collecting needed donations or raising money to donate, 5) Finally, set a positive example and be a role model for your child by caring about others. Be sure to explain to your child why you are helping others and how important it is.
