Arizona’s A-F Letter Grade accountability system was adopted by the State Board of Education in June 2011. The A-F Letter Grades are designed to place equal value on current year achievement and longitudinal academic growth, specifically the growth of all students as well as a school’s lowest achieving students.
The Laveen Elementary School District has demonstrated steady academic progress, earning a district letter grade of B for the four years that Arizona has assigned A-F Letter Grades for accountability.
Transition to a New Accountability System
Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, students across Arizona began taking a new statewide assessment, AzMERIT. As Arizona transitioned to this new assessment, there has been a hiatus on reporting letter grades. Schools are expected to begin receiving an annual letter grade once again this school year.
