Grades released for Sunnyside schools

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona State Board of Education just released the latest A-F Accountability System test results for southern Arizona's second-largest school district, Sunnyside

It shows how SUSD schools stack up on an A to F grade scale.      

Of the 18 schools that were graded:

  • 1 received an "A"
  • 6 received a "B"
  • 6 received a "C”
  • 5 received a "D”
  • 0 scored an "F" 

Overall, SUSD earned a C average or a 2.2 GPA.

A score was not available for Gallego Primary.

School officials said the majority of the A through F system is based on the each school’s AzMERIT test scores – as well as proficiency in English language arts, math and science.

This is the first release since 2014, when the Arizona Board of Education halted the A-F grading as it switched from AIMS testing to the AzMERIT. You can read more about the new grading system HERE.

Grades for TUSDVailAmphi and Marana schools have been released. Grades for other southern Arizona schools will be available Monday, Oct. 9.

Scoring for alternative and online schools is scheduled to be released in January 2018.
