Laguna hosts A+ School of Excellence™ celebration

  • Becky Kelbaugh/Scottsdale Unified School District

Laguna Elementary School will host its A+ School of Excellence™ Celebration Ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 30 at the school at 10475 E. Lakeview Drive in Scottsdale.

 

Student, teachers, staff, administrators at Laguna Elementary School, parents, community members, Scottsdale Unified School District administration and Bobbie O’Boyle of the Arizona Education Foundation  are welcome to the event.

This is the third time that Laguna has been honored with the School of Excellence™ award by the AEF. Laguna received this honor in 2003 and 2010.

A+ Schools are evaluated through an extensive application and a rigorous site visit by the AEF A+ review panel, which consists of teachers, administrators, community volunteers and business leaders. Preparation of each school’s application involves its students, faculty, administration and surrounding community.

The A+ School Recognition Program is designed to identify and recognize schools that exemplify excellence in student focus and support, active teaching and learning, curriculum, community/parent involvement, leadership and assessment data. Schools retain their A+ designation for a three-year period after which they may reapply.
