Pulaski County Special School District spans more than 600 square miles in central Arkansas and requires highly skilled and passionate personnel to adapt educational policies and personalization to 25 schools. Every school is accredited by the Arkansas State Board of Education. PCSSD has served schools across Pulaski County since July 1927.
PCSSD is committed to creating a nationally recognized school district that assures that all students achieve at their maximum potential through collaborative, supportive and continuous efforts of all stakeholders.
The District’s philosophy of education, goals and objectives were adopted by a Board of Education in 1981 (see Board Policy Manual, Code ADA). Since that time, the District’s goals and objectives have been revised twice, with the most recent manual adoption occurring February 8, 2000. Past Boards have established goals to guide the administration in developing specific, system-wide objectives to provide standards for a quality educational program. These goals and objectives are ongoing, and the District is in the continual process of implementing its stated goals and objectives based on its philosophy of education.
Learn more about the District's goals and strategies in the District Improvement Plan (Strategic Plan) which was last updated in the 2020-2021 school year.
