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.

New Construction and Pedestrian Access to WFHS
We are excited that a new wing will be ready when school opens in August 2017 adding 16 new classrooms at the southeast corner of the campus. This will permanently change pedestrian access to our campus beginning with second semester. Construction fencing will soon go up requiring the following changes:
* The pedestrian gate facing east next to the driveway will be permanently closed. We also consider this a plus for security reasons.
* The south-facing doors of the main building will be fenced off and not accessible for entry. They will still be used as emergency exits during construction.
* The door facing "The Nest" just south of the administration offices will be unlocked and available for student entry from inside the campus.
* Students who are released for Seminary will now exit through the library and reenter through the same door. This door will be closely monitored.
If you have any questions about the changes please do not hesitate to contact the WFHS administration.

Late students will only be excused if documentation is provided. A tardy will remain unexcused even if a parent signs the student in. Any tardies resulting in After School Detention assignment (ASD) will be handled by the front desk staff rather than the attendance office.
