Spring break will be March 15 to 19 with school resuming and the fourth quarter beginning on Monday, March 22. Have a safe and happy break!
We are completing our new online annual registration and new student enrollment process through PowerSchool. You’ll be able to complete new student enrollments as well as existing student annual registrations all online. Please watch for directions in the next couple of weeks on how to register your students for next school year.
The Governing Board will be sending out a survey to the stakeholders of the district to begin the strategic planning process. When you receive the link to the survey, please take a few moments to complete it. This will help with guiding the work of the district in the next several years through goal development and establishment of guiding principles and beliefs. You’ll receive a flyer when the survey is ready for your attention.
Starting on Tuesday, February 16 kindergarten through third grade will administer mid-year benchmark assessments using our standards-based assessment system, ATI Galileo. We will administer kindergarten assessments one-on-one verbally and with students performing tasks. First grade assessments will be on paper with teachers reading aloud all stories and questions. All of second and third grade assessments will be online through the students ATI logins, and they will have the universal accommodation of text-to-speech (questions read aloud) for math. Third grade’s assessments will not only measure student’ progress on priority standards learned so far but will also provide teachers with relevant data in preparation for the state AzM2 assessment that third graders will take in April.
We are required to have every child in our district take the AzM2 in person. In the upcoming weeks, please look for the testing schedules and locations for the remote and virtual academy students. This is a federal requirement and according to Arizona Department of Education, not negotiable. We will be doing our best to facilitate schedules and locations that will keep your children (virtual/remote) safe while taking their state assessments.
