Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal announced that AZ Dash, the Arizona Department of Education’s newly designed school report card system, is now available to the public at www.azreportcards.com.
Included in the user-friendly report cards are aggregated AIMS and other test results, contact information for schools, and 2013 A-F Letter Grades for schools, districts and charter holders across the state.
“As a longtime champion of school choice in Arizona, I realize how important it is for parents to have access to meaningful information about their local schools,” Huppenthal said. “This new website will help them better understand how schools are performing, so that they can make informed decisions and find the right school for their children. I am excited that such a valuable resource is now available for parents to use and explore.”
Visitors to the new web site will be able to search for schools or districts by name or via an interactive map that provides results based on an address, ZIP code, town or city. School and district overview pages contain 2013 A-F Letter Grades, total enrollment, grades served, administrator names, and contact information, including a map of the school’s location. Detailed AIMS results are also available, with charts that show performance broken down by grade level, subject, and student details.
In addition to today’s release, the Department is planning a series of future rollouts that will add detailed accountability measures and information about staff and student populations to each report card.
