The Calico Rock School District will not be in session from Wednesday, November 27-Sunday, December 1 for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Congratulations! CALICO ROCK ELEMENTARY has been recognized by the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas as a school that is Beating the Odds, because students demonstrated high growth on the ACT Aspire even though the school serves a high percentage of students who participate in Free and Reduced Lunch! As you may know, the OEP creates an annual report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards, recognizing schools with high student growth. We think growth is the best indicator of the positive impact that your school is having on students.
