Superior District and School News
Active and involved parents are the cornerstone of education, and we want to keep you as informed as possible throughout your children’s time in our schools. We designed our News page to help notify our parents of important district announcements as well as to provide a place to spotlight exceptional students and staff members. Please visit us here often!
The state board of education recently established the criteria for all school labels. Based on our AzMERIT test scores, both JFK Elementary and Superior Junior/Senior High School were classified as "D" schools. This will require each school to present an improvement plan to our governing board as well as the Superior community. The plan shall contain components related to our integrated action plan as identified by the state board of education.
We have already identified areas in need of improvement through a comprehensive needs assessment and root cause analysis. Both were completed last year. We will review and update them this summer. Our school improvement plans are based on the results of that work. Implementation of the plans has already begun and will continue to evolve in the future. As always, we will strive to answer these four main questions:
- Exactly what is it we want our students to learn?
- How will we know when each student has learned was is being taught?
- What happens in our schools when a student does not learn?
- What happens in our schools when a student does learn what is being taught?
