    Following the 2012 elections, Arizona ranked 45th in the nation for voter turnout. To combat this startling statistic, O’Connor House, the legacy project of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, has launched a new voter engagement initiative, The Great Voter Challenge.
    “Roughly half of Arizona voters actually vote and that’s frightening. I hope that we can encourage every citizen to register and vote. It’s so important, and Arizona can do better on that score.”

    Thanksgiving Family Assistance Day Highlights

    Thanks to the work of more than 120 volunteers, the Chandler CARE Center provided the makings for a Thanksgiving dinner for nearly 600 families who turned out Saturday morning for Thanksgiving Family Assistance Day. Frozen turkeys, potatoes, stuffing, fruit, vegetables, soup, cereal, and other items donated by our community were provided to Chandler families.


    Volunteers ranging from individuals to various CUSD schools and sites assisted CARE Center staff with sorting, bagging, and distributing thousands of donated food items. Financial contributions helped make it possible for the CARE Center to purchase rice, beans, and turkeys to complete the bags for each family. Donations of additional turkeys and hams were also received from Central Kitchen, which stored all the frozen items and helped on Saturday by delivering and distributing to families.


    Thank you to the many schools, sites, and clubs from within the district that provided support to the CARE Center. Without that support and assistance, this day would not have been possible! To see photos from the event please visit the website.


    Food and hygiene donations continue to be in need as the CARE Center prepares more food bags for families to receive in December. CUSD staff have another chance to help through the CARE Center’s December 18 Family Assistance Day. Focused on providing new, unwrapped gifts to Chandler youth birth through 18, the December event is a collaboration with Chandler Fire Health and Medical Department and the CUSD community. Donations will be accepted at the CARE Center throughout the month of December. Keep an eye out for more information on volunteer needs.

  • Emergency Notification System

    New Emergency Notification System

    We are pleased to announce that the Chandler Unified School District will soon begin using a notification system called School Messenger to best serve you with timely information about school or district emergencies (such as school closings due to weather).  In the event of an emergency, you will receive a phone call, email and text with important information. Additional School Messenger features to follow later this school year include notifications regarding absences, student safety, and special events.

    If you have a cell phone listed in your school emergency contact information, you will receive a text at that number with instructions for opting in. We will begin sending out confirmation texts on Friday, October 23rd.  If you do not receive an "opt in" text by October 30th, please contact your school office to update your cell phone number on file.  You can visit for more information.

    CUSD Community Relations Department has been nominated for six Emmy Awards. The honor comes after the district's media production department, under the direction of Michael Holland, entered a documentary video about district history into the Rocky Mountain Southwest Regional Emmy Awards competition. The program, called The History of Chandler Schools, Part 3: Summary of a Century, was judged by members of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and deemed worthy of nominations for the coveted award. Emmy trophies will be handed out to selected recipients at an awards event on October 17.


    The program is narrated by John Prothro, teacher at Perry High.
