We are moving into our third week of Arkansas AMI with brand new programming and resources!

What’s New

The Arkansas Department of Education will be sending digital AMI packets to each school district. Then, schools can personalize the lesson plans and are responsible for getting them to students. Schools will determine how best to distribute these materials to families - or families can find them online on their own. Basic lesson plans can be downloaded by individuals, parents, caretakers and others who want to use these resources at myarkansaspbs.org/ArkansasAMI.
