The Arizona Educational Foundation‘s (AEF) 2017 – 2018 A+ School of Excellence™ application was made live and available last week.

This comprehensive school assessment program is the only one of its kind in the state. The A+ School of Excellence™ program evaluates overall school success by examining the following factors related to school success: leadership; culture and organization; identifying and meeting student academic and non-academic needs; teaching and learning; curriculum; community involvement; and assessment.

The selection panel includes award-winning principals, teachers and community leaders. Panel members conduct site visits to qualifying schools throughout the state in order to choose A+ School of Excellence™ award winners.

The application must be submitted online on or before Friday, January 12, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.

Information sessions for educators wanting to know more about the program and process will be hosted by AEF around the state and online this fall.

Dates and registration details regarding these sessions can be found here.

Schools that complete the very comprehensive A+ School of Excellence™ application claim the process allows them to identify and address challenges, generate new support from the community and business partners, increase student and parent pride, validate school programs and accomplishments, and re-energize staff, students, and parents.
