State Spring Testing Update
Chandler Unified School District has taken the opportunity to utilize the Menu of Assessment option at the high school level. We are grateful to the Arizona state legislature for the opportunity to eliminate seven testing days over the course of a child’s high school career and focus that time on learning in the classroom. This means we will no longer administer AzMERIT or AIMS Science for 9th through 12th grade students.
In place of AzMERIT and AIMS Science, CUSD will administer the ACT to all 11th grade students throughout the district. The ACT has been administered to juniors over the last several years within our district in an effort to increase post-secondary enrollment after graduation. This year the exam will serve in that capacity as well as satisfying the state-mandated testing requirement. The students will be assessed in English, Reading, Mathematics and Science.
If you are looking for opportunities for your child to study for the ACT, please visit ACT Academy for personalized instruction and practice assessments.

Brought to you by the NHS Social Outreach Writer
A brief note: We’re sorry for the lack of kindness challenges throughout the month of January. As the social behaviors committee (and other committees) through NHS have been discontinued for club purposes, we deliberated continuing the kindness challenges even without the committee. In short, we will now have a weekly overall challenge with mini suggestions underneath it on how to do that challenge. Please continue to encourage your families, teachers, students, and fellow classmates to help make the world a better place- whether you decide to use these suggestions of not. Thank you so much, NHS Social Outreach Writer.
With the new measuring system,
only 18% of Arizona schools received an “A” grade.
