Finding the Right School for Your Children
Welcome to Arizona! You have several options when selecting a school for your student(s). You can find schools in your area and see how they are performing by visiting our newly updated School Report Cards. There you’ll be able to see information about a school’s size, test results, and A-F letter grade rating.
You’re absolutely correct – starting with the 2013-2014 school year, all Arizona schools will be implementing Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards. These standards are more rigorous than Arizona’s previous standards, and we have many resources designed to help you better understand what they mean for your student(s).
First, if the issue is taking place in the classroom, try to address it with your child’s teacher. Then, make an appointment with the principal of the school. If your issue is still not resolved, contact the superintendent of the district or charter school administrative office that oversees your child’s school. If you have still not reached a resolution, your final step is to bring the problem to the attention of the governing school board. They are the officials that hold regular meetings regarding school issues in your district or charter school system. They will make the final decision regarding most issues.
The governing school board makes final decisions about student grades, promotion and retention, discipline issues, teacher contracts, parental involvement, curriculum, textbook, student travel etc.
