• 2018–2019 A–F Letter Grades

    Dear Gilbert Public Schools Families,

    The Arizona Department of Education released 2019 School Letter Grades this week.  The state’s Accountability System is designed to empower schools to achieve and increase success for their students. The system provides districts and schools with feedback on areas of strength and those that may need additional focus and enrichment.  The system is intended to be utilized to help schools and districts improve student outcomes, communicate with families to better understand how their school is performing and to help identify schools and districts that may be in need of support.  

    The system quantitatively measures student proficiency and annual growth in key areas as well as student readiness for whatever is next in their education or career.  

    Schools earn a letter grade based on a range of metrics including:

    • Proficiency in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science
    • Subgroup Proficiency Improvement
    • Growth in English Language Arts and Mathematics
    • Proficiency and Growth of English Language Learners
    • High School Graduation Rate
    • Acceleration and Readiness Measures, consisting of several items including reduction of chronic absenteeism and the improved growth of subgroups
    • College and Career Readiness Indicators, including minimum thresholds on ACT/SAT, ASVAB, AP Tests, earning CTE industry credentials, certificates, or licenses.

    Every year, each elementary, junior high, and high school will receive a 'Letter Grade'.  These designations will use quantitative and qualitative data to assess performance.  

    The Letter Grades used are as follows:

    A = Excellent

    B = Highly Performing

    C = Performing

    D = Minimally Performing 

    F = Failing

    Gilbert Public Schools is very proud of our students and staff. While this system is a useful measure of our academic progress, it does not consider nor value the culture and climate our dedicated staff create in providing the quality of education your children receive. We appreciate you choosing Gilbert Public Schools for your children, and we are proud of all that our students and staff have accomplished over the past academic year.
