Oden Campus Parents, Families and Community Members: Every year, each public school and district in Arkansas receives a Report Card. Just as each student’s report card shows his/her progress in specific subjects, the School Report Card shows how our school is performing in different areas. This user-friendly information is available at https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov/SRC/30/5706009. The goal of the Report Card is to provide transparent and accessible information to parents, families, and the community all in one place. In the 2019-2020 school year, events related to COVID-19 caused a substantial disruption to on-site instruction, assessment, accountability, and reporting. Because of these events, some items typically included in accountability and reporting are not available. Although COVID-19 has made substantial interruptions, the work of our learning communities continues. The global pandemic interrupted not only our nation’s health, but it interrupted our educational system. In the 2019-2020 school year, Arkansas’ students did not participate in high stakes testing. The lack of assessment data allows us to view accountability through other lenses that support student achievement. Please take note of our Graduation Rates. The staff, students, and community has worked hard to help each student achieve high school graduation status. Oden K-12 Schools is grateful for your continued support. If you have questions about the Report Card, please visit the My School Info website https://myschoolinfo.arkansas.gov/SRC to find more information, definitions of terms, videos which explain how the site works, and answers to frequently asked questions. If you would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to know more about the information in our school report card, please contact us at 870-326-4311.

Seniors, I am very sorry this national pandemic has happened on your senior year.  I wanted to send this message in order to encourage you at a time that I know most of you need it.  Know as soon as things are back to normal, ORSD will do everything in our power to honor you all for your dedication, accomplishments, and achievements.  I look forward to your graduation and proms!  I don't know when that will happen yet but Lord willing, we will have those events as soon as possible.  Right now the best thing to do is to stay at home and distance ourselves for one another in order to slow down the spread of this serious virus.   Again, I am very sorry that this has happened to you all on your senior year.  That is certainly not fair, but life is not always fair, as you know.  What matters the most is how we treat each other during this tough time in our nation.  Please know I am proud of you and how you have conducted yourselves this year.  Now is the time we need you the most to do what is right. Please stay safe.  I am praying for you all daily.  Hang in there! Respectfully,  Jerrall A.
