Dear parents,

 

This is the time of year when all schools begin gearing up for the state assessment.  As most of you have heard, Arizona schools will be taking a new assessment this year.  The AZMerit test will be administered to all 3rd – 8th grade students.  All schools in the Florence Unified School District have opted to take the paper version of the AZMerit.  Our school will be testing during the week of April 13.  Please make sure that your child is at school during testing week.  In addition to the AZMerit for 3rd – 8th graders, our 2nd grade students will take the SAT10 just as they have in years past.  There have been no major adjustments to this assessment.  Below are links to more information on the AZMerit test.  If you have any questions about the state assessments please call the school at 480-888-7520 and ask to speak with an administrator.

 

 

 

Believe, Succeed, Lead!

Mr. Haugen

Parent/Student Surveys

Your opinion about the performance of your child’s school is very important to us!  We are asking that you complete a parent survey so that we can gain valuable information on the inner-workings of Skyline Ranch K-8. 

 

This survey was developed by the Arizona Department of Education and will only take about 5 minutes to complete.  Your identity will remain completely anonymous.  Your responses to the survey questions will be combined with responses from other parents to give us information about SKR.
