Dear Nautilus Parents/Guardians:

We recently received our A – F Accountability Profile from the Arizona Department of Education.

Below is the information regarding our Letter Grade that has been assigned by the State of Arizona. This grade is based on the 2016-17 school year AzMERIT assessments.

Nautilus Elementary School
Letter Grade=B

These new letter grades are based on an assessment of more rigorous Arizona standards and will provide a new baseline for our school planning process.

Over the summer, our school conducted a Comprehensive Needs Assessment. Based on our analysis, we identified the following areas of focus for the 2017-18 school year:

  • Nautilus Mission Statement
  • Instructional strategies and vertical alignment in Math and English
  • Closing the gaps with standards, instruction, and assessment
  • Improving communication with parents in regards to instruction, curriculum, and discipline

Annual Test Scores are not the only indicator of school quality. 

During the 2016-17 school year, we celebrated many successes, including:

  • Arizona  top 10% of schools in Mathematics and Language Arts in the state who have at least 60% F/R lunch population
  • AZ MERIT 5th Grade Math Scores highest in the District
  • ASU collaboration with our STEM CLUB

Our staff is committed to ensuring that all students graduate our school prepared for the future.  This year, we had two teams of teachers go to Tucson to work on increasing our skills in the areas of Mathematics and positive behavior.

Thank you for your continued support.  I look forward to meeting with you and working together to meet our goals!

Sincerely,
Mr. Burger, Principal
Nautilus Elementary School
