PHOENIX — How does your child's school stack up to schools around the state?
The Arizona Department of Education on Wednesday launched their annual School Report Cards, listing A-F letter grades for schools across our state.
For each school, the report cards detail a breakdown of student enrollment, teacher qualifications, performance in academic assessments, as well as graduation and dropout rates.
The department's A-F system is based on measurements of year-to-year student academic growth, and proficiency on English language arts, math, and science.
"I am very proud of both our Accountability and IT departments for developing another wonderful tool that helps parents find the best education for their children," Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said. "I am thrilled that parents will have all of this information at their fingertips, allowing them to make the most informed decision about schools for their children."
