  • Curriculum review now open for public comment

    The Higley Unified School District is excited to adopt a new K-12 English Language Arts curriculum, which will be introduced to students in the 2017-18 school year. These materials will support our teachers in teaching the state standards in reading and language arts, as well as provide materials to support students at all levels of instruction.  Our teachers will no longer need to spend valuable time finding support materials, but can instead spend their time choosing which available materials are appropriate to teach each child.  A districtwide committee met this year to review materials from three national publishing companies and selected the publisher it felt best met the needs of the district’s teachers and students. As per Board policy, these materials are now on display for 60 days in the district office for parents and community members to view. If you are interested in viewing these materials and providing your feedback, please come to the district office at 2935 S. Recker during regular office hours.  Materials will be available for review until April 14.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Warren Shillingburg, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services,  at (480) 279.7014.

  • District launches survey in next step of strategic planning

    As part of a strategic planning process launched in January 2017, the Higley Unified School District is conducting a districtwide survey Feb. 13 through Feb. 26. The survey is open to employees, parents, community members and Higley students in seventh through 12th grade. Involvement of the entire community is essential to the development of a long-term framework for decision making that builds upon common values held by the Higley community.

    Among Higley’s top priorities this school year is the development of this strategic plan. This plan will articulate organizational and stakeholder priorities through the authentic engagement of parents, employees, and community members.

    Higley families and employees will receive an email invitation to complete the survey, or can click on the link at the bottom of this announcement. Community members without children attending Higley can also use this link. The link will take all participants to a third-party website where users will identify their affiliation to the district to take the proper survey. All responses will remain anonymous.

    ECRA Group Inc., an independent research firm, is conducting the surveys. The firm will analyze responses and prepare a strategic plan report for Higley to share with the community in April 2017. ECRA is an established leader in the areas of educational assessment, research, and strategic planning. Based in Schaumburg, Ill., ECRA has more than 35 years of experience helping educational organizations across the nation better understand and document their performance, and chart a course for the future.
