ATTENTION: TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS

On April 25, 2011, the State Board of Education (SBE) unanimously passed the proposed Arizona Framework for Measuring Educator Effectiveness. This action resulted from the passage of SB 1040 that directed the SBE to adopt and maintain a model framework for teacher and principal evaluation that includes quantitative data on student academic progress. ADE will continue to update this page in order to provide the most current information and resources to assist all Local Education Agencies (LEA) with the successful implementation of the framework in the 2012-2013 school year.

*Charter system

“A” grades were awarded to school districts and charter systems that earned at least 140 of a possible 200 points using the Arizona Department of Education’s A-F School Accountability Letter Grade System.

In addition to receiving an “A” letter grade, districts and charter systems had to meet the following criteria to qualify:

  • Operate multiple school sites

PLEASE NOTE:
While this list focuses on those high performing organizations impacting a large number of students, many districts and charters have individual schools that have received “A” letter grades. Those schools can all be found in the list available at the link below. It is also important to note that many small or single-school districts and charter systems have also received “A” letter grades.
