2016-17 School Letter Grades

The State Board of Education released 2016-17 school letter grades Oct. 6. I am excited to announce that Taft Elementary received an A!

This grade was determined primarily by student growth and proficiency on the state assessments, AzMERIT and AIMS Science. Additional factors take into consideration English language learners, special education students and absenteeism. Visit mpsaz.org/info for more information about how letter grades were determined.

Only 18 percent of schools in the state received an A. I am proud of the hard work of our students, staff and community that contributed to our success. Way to go, Taft White Tigers. Thank you for continuing to support our school.
