Banners celebrate school accomplishment

Lake Havasu Unified schools all did very well on the recently released 2006-07 State AZ Learns Achievement Profiles. To recognize this accomplishment, superintendent Gail Malay and director of educational services Wes Brownfield visited our schools to present achievement banners. Most of the presentations were made in a classroom so students could also enjoy the moment.

Achievement Profile ratings are accessed for each Arizona school based on a complex formula using different criteria for K-8 and high school. K-8 ratings are based on the Arizona Measure of Academic Progress (MAP), the percent of students who pass AIMS, and AZELLA (Arizona English Language Learner Assessment) results. High school ratings are based on dropout rate, graduation rate, percent of students passing AIMS, and AZELLA results. A school may be rated as underperforming, performing, performing plus, highly performing, or excelling. All LHUSD #1 schools were rated performing plus or higher. Congratulations to our students and staff!
