The Dysart Unified School District received a grade of “B” from the Arizona Department of Education in the first year of a new state grading system to measure school and district success.
The Arizona Department of Education has released its new state rating system, A-F Accountability Profiles, for all public schools throughout the state after merely providing labels such as “performing,” “highly performing” and “excelling” for many years.
In the inaugural year of the new accountability profiles, six district schools received a state grade of “A;” 11 schools received a “B” and seven schools received a grading of “C.”
In addition to the new accountability profiles, the Arizona Department of Education also released AZ Learns Legacy Labels for all state public and charter schools.
The old legacy system is being phased out and will be completely replaced by the A-F profiles beginning in 2013.
Through the old AZ Learns system, five Dysart schools are labeled as “excelling,” four are “highly performing,” 12 are performing plus and three are “performing.”
