Searcy District and Curriculum
Searcy Public Schools are comprised of three elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. Riverside School District consists of two elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school. The Riverview School District serves a total of 1,355 students and has an approximate student-to-teacher ratio of twelve-to-one. Both districts emphasize core academics, strong college and career readiness options, interest-based electives, and community service.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Searcy District Curriculum
Both school districts utilize the Common Core Standards in their instruction. In the year 2014, Searcy Public Schools will implement the Common Core Standards across all grade levels. Teachers in the K-3 grades have incorporated these standards since the 2011-12 school year. Students in Arkansas public schools will begin taking the Common Assessment in the 2014-15 school year.
For English Language Arts, Searcy Public Schools also use the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) Model Content Framework for students in grades 3-11. There is a chart provided for each grade level which portrays what students should learn and be able to do during each of the four quarters, or modules, of the school year. Each chart contains standards for reading, writing, and research. This is not a stand-alone curriculum but is helpful in supplementing the English Language Arts Common Core Standards.

Keeping Informed: Recent Searcy Educational News
- Perfect ACT Score! - A senior at Searcy High School, recently earned a perfect composite score of 36 on the ACT college assessment. This is a rare feat; of all the students to take the ACT, the percentage that receives a perfect score is miniscule. Congratulations, and keep up the good work!
- Watch Dog Dads - Westside Elementary School—part of the Searcy Public Schools—has announced its involvement in the national program WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students). This organization welcomes fathers and father figures (grandfathers, uncles, etc.) to serve as positive male role models, help reduce bullying, and become involved in their children’s education. Members do not have to commit much time to visiting the school (just one day per year), so this is a great and convenient way for them to volunteer.
- Top 25 Schools - Two middle schools within the Searcy Public Schools made the list of the Top 25 Arkansas Middle Schools. Ahlf Junior High School appeared on the list for the third straight year and ranked in the top 25 in all three categories: Math, Literacy, and Math & Literacy. Southwest Middle School was the 18th school in Literacy. Congratulations to these schools!

Chalk Talk: Technology in Education
When a child of modern day society returns home from school, s/he may have her choice of several activities. Perhaps s/he will select an app on her iPad to use or play a computer game or read an e-book. Today’s students are much different than those of any other generation because they have been exposed to a multitude of technology, which continues to evolve rapidly. Today, it is difficult to capture students’ attention with worksheets and overhead projectors, so it is essential for educators and schools to provide as much meaningful technology as they can while dealing with issues such as teacher fears and a lack of room in the school district budget to accommodate many and new technologies. Students are often more technologically savvy than their teachers, which can help ease teachers’ concerns in implementing technology. It is important for schools to provide their staff members with adequate professional development in this area as well. Technology—if it is used correctly, meaningfully, and to enhance the curriculum—can open up a new, interactive world that would not have been possible in past classrooms.
