  • Higley Board approves elementary school early release Wednesdays
     
    The Higley Unified School District governing board voted 5-0 on May 27 to approve an early release (1 p.m.) every Wednesday at elementary schools to allow time for teacher instructional planning. The new schedule will begin the first week of classes. The first day of school is July 27, 2015.
     
    The plan was recommended to the governing board to return planning time to teachers that has been lost over the last few years.
     
    Parents who would like after-school care may register for the Community Education Department’s Kids Club program, available at all elementary schools on early release days for $20. Care is available 1 to 6 p.m. Information and registration is on the Community Education website or by calling (480) 279-7055.
     
    Middle schools and high schools will continue with early release/professional development days already scheduled. Please see the district’s calendar for more information.
     
    Thank you for your patience as we move to this new schedule.

  • Board follows federal mandate to raise lunch price 10 cents
     
    The Higley Unified School District Governing Board complied with the federal requirements requiring a raise of 10-cent increase to elementary, middle and high school lunch prices beginning in July 2015 with the new school year.
     
    The price rate increases are required to follow the federal standard known as the “paid lunch equity requirement.” To meet the requirement that the district’s average paid lunch price be less than the difference between the free and paid federal reimbursement rates, a district must either raise lunch prices or subsidize meals through the use of nonfederal funds. This mandate is in place for at least the new two school years.
     
    This change amounts to the following lunch prices for the 2015/16 school year:
    Elementary and preschool: $2.55
    Middle school: $2.90
    High School: $3.05

  • Mandarin Immersion Program Update

    Coronado Elementary School is accepting  students in kindergarten, first and second-grade for its Mandarin Choice Program for the 2015/16 school year.

    Students in the Mandarin Immersion program will receive instruction in both Mandarin and English during their school day. Math and science are taught by a native Mandarin speaker. Language arts and social studies are taught by an English-speaking teacher. The students also participate in all other programs at Coronado, including physical education, the arts, after-school options and more.

    Language immersion programs are the fastest growing educational segment for language acquisition. Coronado Principal Dr. Mai-Lon Wong successfully launched Arizona’s first Mandarin Immersion program in her prior school district.

    Parents and families can learn more about the program during upcoming meetings at Coronado, 4333 S. DeAnza Blvd., Gilbert. A list of upcoming meetings can be found at www.husd.org/mandarin.

  • Coronado Elementary and All Higley Schools Earn 'A' Ratings from
    Arizona Department of Education
     
    The Arizona Department of Education recently released school performance rankings based on spring 2014 AIMS scores. We are proud to announce that all elementary, middle and high schools in the Higley Unified School District earned “A” ratings.

    The news was announced as nearly 12,000 students in preschool through high school began their first day of the 2014-15 school year.
     
    For the last four years, the Arizona Department of Education has rated school performances with letter grades based on academic growth and student achievement. This is the fourth year in a row that the Higley Unified School District has earned an “A” grade. Higley Unified School District was the top point earner for large, public school districts in Arizona this year. In fact, five of our eight elementary schools are in the Top 10 percent of all K-6 schools in Arizona.
     
    “We are elated to share our ‘A’ grades with Higley families, the Towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek and the entire Valley,” said Superintendent Dr. Denise Birdwell. “It is a testament to the work of our teachers, staff, students and families. Finding out Higley is the top, large school district in the state brings recognition to the hard work of the entire Higley schools community. From students and their parents to the teachers, bus drivers, classroom aides and school principals, we wish to thank everyone for their efforts that contribute to making Higley the best district in the Valley.”

  • Parentvue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
