  • Bridges Elementary School update and intent to enroll form
    Construction is under way for a Higley Unified School District neighborhood elementary school in The Bridges of Gilbert. The Governing Board approved the school’s name – Bridges Elementary School – last month. Currently, elementary school students who live in The Bridges are assigned to Higley’s Power Ranch Elementary School. Those students recently selected a mascot for their new school. The Bridges Bobcat will be a presence at the new school when it opens.

    Registration for Bridges Elementary School is tentatively planned for January. If you plan to enroll your child in Bridges Elementary School, but do not currently attend Power Ranch Elementary School, we would like to learn about you and your plans. Please take a moment to provide information on this “intent to enroll” form.

    If you know of families in The Bridges of Gilbert who may enroll, please share this link with them.

  • Higley Governing Board Calls for Special Maintenance & Operations Budget Override Election, Nov. 3, 2015
    On June 24, 2015, the Higley Unified Governing Board voted to adopt a resolution ordering all matters necessary for a 15 percent maintenance and operations budget override election to be held on Nov. 3, 2015. If approved, the maintenance and operations override would allow the district to increase its budget by 15 percent of the state’s Revenue Control Limit.
    The Higley Unified School District governing board has requested a 15 percent maintenance and operations budget override to:
    Increase teacher compensation for retention and recruitment;
    • Maintain and improve elementary specials such as arts, music and physical education, and athletics and arts;
    Provide staffing to reduce average class sizes;
    • Support gifted, special education and all day kindergarten;
    • Provide education resources to classrooms.

    With adoption of the resolution, the district has posted a request for arguments for and against the proposed override increase in fiscal year 2016/17 and subsequent fiscal years budgets to be considered by the voters of Higley Unified School District. Any person interested in providing any such argument is hereby requested to provide it to the County School Superintendent of Maricopa County before 5 p.m. Aug. 7.
