Upcoming AIMS/AzMerit Testing and Transportation Details
Please keep in mind the importance of these testing dates and ensure your student arrives to campus prior to the start of academic instruction. In addition, once a teacher begins administering, no student will be pulled from class for any reason as this will invalidate their test. Finally, we encourage students to get plenty of rest and be ready to do their best.

Open enrollment: 2019/2020
Families that wish to open enroll in any Higley Unified School District campus for the 2019/2020 school year may submit an open enrollment packet to the school of their choice. If a student resides out of the boundaries of a school, or out of the boundaries of the school district, an open enrollment application must be completed. Applications for open enrollment are accepted year round. If applying for the following school year, the school will notify the parent/guardian of a decision by May 1. The parent must confirm the acceptance of the open enrollment opportunity within five (5) working days.
Information and packets can be found on the website – www.husd.org/enrollment.
All HUSD families should sign up for a ParentVue account. This allows parents to view student grades and absences, as well as see – when they are posted – class schedules and teacher information. The district also uses ParentVue during class selection times at the middle schools and high schools.
Sign up requires an IN PERSON visit to the school office. If you already have a ParentVue account, and your child is moving from one HUSD school to another, no action is required. The updated information will appear when it is available.
If you have questions, please contact your school's office.
