RRE Receives "A" Letter Grade from State Board for the Second Year!

Rattlesnake Ridge Elementary received an A letter grade - excellent level of performance – from the Arizona State Board of Education! The A-F Accountability System assesses Quantitative Data - how well students in grade levels 3-12 performed on the AzMERIT and/or AIMS assessment in April 2018, annual growth in key areas, absenteeism, as well as student readiness and language proficiency assessment scores.

 

Rattlesnake Ridge educators and staff are extremely proud of this grade and the recognition of the academics and hard efforts occurring every day including the ongoing integration of instructional technology and a continuing emphasis on effective instructional practices including job-embedded professional development that provides teachers with the tools and resources they need to impact student learning. These areas of focus, along with the school’s commitment to data-informed decision making, are evidence-based methods for improving academic achievement.

 

Additional resources for academic support and success such as individualized instruction and interventions, school leadership, and parent involvement opportunities to engage parents in their child’s learning are additional methods where Rattlesnake Ridge has enhanced students’ success. Rattlesnake Ridge continues to focus on student achievement and preparing all students to be college and career ready.
