  • Curriculum review now open for public comment

    The Higley Unified School District is excited to adopt a new K-12 English Language Arts curriculum, which will be introduced to students in the 2017-18 school year. These materials will support our teachers in teaching the state standards in reading and language arts, as well as provide materials to support students at all levels of instruction.  Our teachers will no longer need to spend valuable time finding support materials, but can instead spend their time choosing which available materials are appropriate to teach each child.  A districtwide committee met this year to review materials from three national publishing companies and selected the publisher it felt best met the needs of the district’s teachers and students. As per Board policy, these materials are now on display for 60 days in the district office for parents and community members to view. If you are interested in viewing these materials and providing your feedback, please come to the district office at 2935 S. Recker during regular office hours.  Materials will be available for review until April 14.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Warren Shillingburg, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services,  at (480) 279.7014.

  • Support Cortina and receive up to $400 AZ Tax Credit


    The state of Arizona allows you to receive a tax credit of up to $200 ($400 if married and filing jointly) when you make an ECA tax credit donation to our school. We will use your tax dollar donation to help fund extra curricular activities and opportunities for our students to extend their learning beyond the regular school day and you will get a dollar-for-dollar credit towards your tax return. Before and after school tutoring, school clubs and field trip experiences are just a few of the enrichment programs that are made possible when ECA funds are donated to our school.  Please name Cortina Elementary School as the recipient of your donation so that we may provide quality enrichment programs like these for our learners. We appreciate your support and are dedicated to spending your tax dollars responsibly.
