AZ Merit Update
In Spring 2015, Higley Unified School District and schools across Arizona administered the first AzMERIT assessments. These assessments were designed to cover language arts and math.
Over the next few months, districts, schools and parents will receive results. Several different reports are available to help families understand the results. The district has put together an AzMERIT Parent Resource page to provide additional information.
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.
