Arkansas School for the Deaf is committed to providing a curriculum that advances knowledge and professional practices in teaching and learning to a diverse student population. Our goal is to maximize rich learning opportunities for every student, every day, every minute and in every way possible.


Arkansas law recognizes that “students in Arkansas deserve the best education that citizens can provide”. ASD has high expectations for student performance while working to foster individualized student linguistic, social, emotional, and physical development. ASD adheres to state standards that are stated in Arkansas Curriculum Frameworks.


Student demonstration of the standards and learning expectations within the Arkansas Curriculum Frameworks is the anchor for ASD educational programming.  All IEP goals and objectives, school instruction programs, state-level assessments, district-level assessments, professional development, school improvement planning, teacher/administrator licensure, and accountability are centered around these standards.
