School Letter Grades

On October 31, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) released A-F School Letter Grades based on data from the 2018-2019 school year. Letter grades for schools within the PVSchools district are listed below.

This system measures student proficiency and growth in English language arts, math, and science. This is in addition to other indicators such as attendance, participation in advanced classes, and graduation rates at our high schools.

It is important to remember the letter grade system gives districts information regarding academic performance on one specific state assessment, but does not provide a full picture of each school. For example, it does not take into account other measures of academic performance and learning within classrooms and schools, nor does it consider the unique programs and characteristics of each school, student and parent satisfaction, schools’ climate and culture, or other significant accomplishments. If you are interested in learning more about the state’s letter grade system, visit the Arizona State Board of Education website.

The A through F accountability system is one tool to help schools identify areas for improvement, for parents to understand how their child’s school is performing, and for the state of Arizona to determine how to better utilize resources for schools needing additional support.

Thank you for your support of PVSchools, where everyday is an opportunity for growth and positive change leading to every learner being empowered for a lifetime of success.
