  • 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.

  • 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.
