Dear Scottsdale Unified School District Family,
Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) is truly fortunate to have outstanding students, teachers and support staff as well as specialized programs that make us stand out across Arizona and the nation. It is only the end of the first quarter, and our students and teachers have already accomplished so much! See the October Letter.
The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has released its new A-F Achievement Profiles for the 2013-14 school year. Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) did well; the District received an A for a fourth consecutive year with a score of 144, our highest score ever. Nineteen schools received the highest grade of A, seven schools received B, three schools received C and one school received a D. See Grades
Sophomores in SUSD high schools will have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT at no cost to parents. “By offering the PSAT/NMSQT to all sophomores at no cost, it will provide parents, students and the schools with useful information to identify areas that require more attention for post-secondary goals,” said Dr. Mitch von Gnechten, executive director of Secondary Schools. “The results of the test will help our students set goals for the next two years and will help increase college and career readiness.” See PSAT/NMSQT
Please join Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) to learn factual information about the Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Override that will be on the November ballot. SUSD Chief Financial Officer Daniel O’Brien will also be available to answer any questions the community has regarding the budget and this school funding mechanism.

Arcadia High School is fully implementing the SUSD Attendance Policy for the 2014-2015 school year. This policy was approved by the SUSD Governing Board in 2011 and aligns with Arizona State Statute.
As stated in the SUSD Code of Conduct, attending public school carries with it certain attendance responsibilities on the part of both parents and students. Students should be absent from school only when absolutely necessary. Regular attendance is the key to much of the success a student may gain from his/her educational program.
Arcadia High School is committed to improving student attendance in 2014-2015 and school personnel will keep parents informed of actions that might have a detrimental effect upon the educational growth of the student. Arcadia High School will be handing out the Attendance Policy to every student during Student Registration, placed in all classrooms, and posted on our website. Please be familiar with the Absence and Tardy sections on these documents and the actions that will be implemented as students reach these accrued numbers.
If you have any additional questions, please contact Lisa Richards (Attendance Coordinator).
