Welcome to the Home of the Warriors!!
The mission of Ouachita Public Schools is to provide, in a safe and nurturing environment, each student with equitable opportunities to become independent. Ouachita School District will involve teachers, students, parents, and community members in the total education process.
Attention Ouachita High School Class of 2020:
The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education has issued guidance for high school seniors that are to graduate and were in good standing at the end of the third quarter. These seniors are considered to have met graduation requirements for the State of Arkansas with the following exceptions:
Seniors enrolled in concurrent college classes must complete them with a passing grade to receive college credit. Students need to talk to their concurrent credit instructors to find out what is required. If you need help with this just let Mr Knoedl or Mrs Fulmer know.
Seniors enrolled in ASU-Three Rivers technical classes must complete their classes online via ASU’s instructions. (These instructions have been emailed to each student)
Seniors enrolled in AP courses need to contact your teachers to stay current and continue preparation for the AP exams, which will be administered from home. Dr. Kissire will send out guidance on this process soon. The AP Test schedule will be available April 6
Seniors who do not have a passing grade as of March 20, 2020, will need to work with the teacher(s) and counselor to recover the credit.
Seniors will need to return all school equipment and books, and take care of any outstanding debts. The process for that will be communicated at a later date.
When all of the above requirements are met, Seniors will be eligible for graduation. If graduation is not held on May 18 it will be held at a time we are cleared to have it. Mrs. Fulmer will be in touch with Seniors soon to inform you of your status.
