AIMS scores for school districts across the state were released earlier this month.
Stevenson Elementary received a B while Clawson, Joe Carlson and Sarah Marley Elementary, Huber Middle School and Douglas High School all received C’s. Faras Elementary and Ray Borane Middle School were given D’s.
No school was given an F.
According to Beverly Enriquez, Curriculum and Federal Programs Director for DUSD, Carlson, Sarah Marley and Stevenson all saw increases in their letter grades while the remaining schools remained the same.
“Although we would have liked more growth, there were no declines and the trajectory for improvement is slowly moving upward,” she said. “We will continue working on this in the coming year as we have put forth many district initiatives that will directly address this including creating new pacing/curriculum guides for all courses in DUSD, creating common formative assessments that will be given on three week cycles and a new evaluation system for administrators, teachers and assistants.”
All but four of the grade levels taking the test showed improvement in math and reading.
Actual test scores will be released to the board at its Aug. 21 meeting.
Both Enriquez and DUSD Superintendent Sheila Rogers are in Phoenix this week meeting with state school officials and getting additional information that will be presented to the school board at next week’s meeting.
