  • Phoenix Union Accredited by AdvancED
    The AdvancED Accreditation External Review team spent three days in Phoenix, February 9-11, to complete their evaluation of the District. The six-person team met and interviewed 216 board members, administrators, teachers, support staff, students, parents, business and community stakeholders, and visited six schools.
       The review concluded with a special board meeting, February 11, in which AdvancED recommended Accreditation for Phoenix Union High School District. Lead evaluator Bill Rivenbark explained that accreditation is not to find out if a “school district is good enough, but rather to see that it is continuously improving.” Using an Index of Educational Quality, or IEQ, evaluating Teaching/Learning Impact; Leadership Capacity and Resource Utilization, Phoenix Union was above the national average in two of the three-Teaching Impact and Leadership Capacity.
       A more detailed report will follow, with recommendations for continuous improvement, and the District has two years to respond to those recommendations in a written report. Accreditation takes place every five years. However, this is the first time the entire District was accredited at one time.

  • Health Alert
    With the flu and cold season upon us, our school nurses request that you not send your student to school if he/she is ill. We have had several students arrive at school sick, and check in with the school nurse at the direction of their parents. Not only does this overburden the school health centers, but sick students run the risk of infecting others. For more details about when not to send your child to school click here: http://phoenixunion.org//site/Default.aspx?PageID=15793

  • AzMERIT to Replace AIMS Exams for 2017 Graduates
    Arizona Dept. of Education Logo
    The State Board of Education has adopted a new assessment to replace the AIMS Reading, Writing and Mathematics exams. AzMERIT, Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching, will be administered statewide in the spring of 2015 for the first time. The tests will measure proficiency of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards in the areas of Math and English Language Arts in grades 9, 10 and 11.

    Currently, students will not be required to pass the end-of-course tests for graduation, but must still earn the minimum number of English and Mathematics credits in order to graduate. The actual test dates have not been determined yet, but will be across multiple days in April.

    High school students graduating after December 31, 2016 will no longer be required to pass the AIMS tests to graduate high school. AIMS Science will still be administered, tied to school accountability, but not graduation.
