Survey for Superintendent Search

The Smackover-Norphlet Board of Education has selected McPherson & Jacobson, L.L.C., Executive Recruitment and Development to assist them in the important task of selecting superintendent candidates for the board to interview.

The consultants are trying to gather input from the community regarding the qualities of the next Superintendent.

An online survey has been created for this purpose.  Click here to access the survey.

The survey will be open from October 15-22, 2018.

ADE Releases School Report Card

The Arkansas Department of Education team released the 2018 Accountability at-a-Glance Report and the 2018 ESSA School Index report for all schools in the state today.  The Arkansas Department of Education publishes these reports annually, which provides important information about each school including test performance, graduation rate, school quality, and student success. The reports also provide information about how well schools are meeting the educational needs of special populations of students.

The Accountability-at-a-Glance Report is intended to be an easy-to-read one page overview of the school rating and the school index score.

Greater involvement from parents results in better outcomes for students!  We trust the 2018 ESSA School Index reports will encourage you to become even more engaged in your child’s education.

We would like to thank all of the faculty and staff in the Smackover-Norphlet School District who have worked so hard to improve student achievement in the school district!

It’s Coat Season!

Attention Parents and Family Members:

Fall is finally here (at least for a few days!)

During these wonderful first days of fall, students often need a coat or jacket in the morning.  By the afternoon, it feels like summer again.  Because the children don’t need their jackets in the afternoon, the kids don’t miss them when they drop their jackets or leave them behind.

However, when parents label the inside of the coat or jacket with the child’s first and last name on the inside of the jacket, it is easy for the school to get the jacket back to its rightful owner.

So please help us out this weekend by labeling your child’s coat or jacket!

Community Input Meeting

The Smackover-Norphlet Board of Education has selected McPherson & Jacobson, L.L.C., Executive Recruitment and Development to assist them in the important task of selecting superintendent candidates for the board to interview.

The consultants will be meeting with community members on Monday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m. in Hobgood Auditorium on the Smackover High School Campus to gather input regarding the qualities of the next Superintendent.

This meeting is open to any patron who wishes to provide input.
