Message From the Principal
This week we held a surprise assembly for our students to make a special announcement about our school. Over the past several months, a team of CCR staff members have worked diligently on the AEF (Arizona Educational Foundation) A+ School of Excellence Application.
The process to obtain this award, is meeting the eligibility criteria, completing a comprehensive application, and waiting to see if we were selected to move to the next round, for a Site Panel Visit.
Yesterday, we were notified by the Arizona Educational Foundation that we have in fact made it to the next round and qualified for a Site Panel Visit. This 2-day visit will be scheduled on February 24th & 25th.
During the site visit, panel judges will visit classrooms, interview staff members, parents and interview select students. The panel is looking for high levels of student achievement, innovation in classroom instruction and programs, implementation of school wide goals (3-Year STEM Implementation Plan), and high levels of satisfaction or consensus.
If selected, Circle Cross Ranch S.T.E.M. Academy will be awarded the A+ School of Excellence Award and be able to retain an A+ label for 3 and a ½ years.
