AZ Dash, ADE’s new school report card system, is now available at www.azreportcards.com. Included in the report cards are AIMS and other test results, contact information, and 2013 A-F Letter Grades for schools, districts and charter holders across Arizona.
Arizona’s A-F Letter Grades are designed to place equal value on current year achievement and longitudinal academic growth, specifically the growth of all students as well as a school’s lowest achieving students. Click here for more information and a 2014 timeline.

“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
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.

On August 2, 2012, Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal announced the release of Arizona’s 2011-2012 A-F letter grades for all district and charter schools in the state. New this year are three additional letter grade models designed for small, K-2, and alternative schools, which should provide even greater value to parents as they choose appropriate placement for their students.
