School letter grades released for southern Arizona schools
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Arizona Education Department released the school report cards across the state earlier this week after suspending the grading system during the pandemic.
Below is a breakdown of how the larger school districts in Pima County performed. A full list of every school in southern Arizona is at the bottom of this story.
The purpose of the report cards is to give parents a yardstick to compare schools -- and school leaders have a snapshot of where they need to improve. The state education departments work on targeted plans with “D” and “F” schools to help them raise their scores.
Schools have until Nov. 15 to appeal their grades.
