We're excited to announce ACA has applied for the Arizona Education Foundations (AEF) designation as an A+ School of Excellence again! This is a prestigious award that is granted to a select group of schools annually. ACA was previously awarded this designation during the 2018-2019 school year. The process includes a lengthy application with multiple questions to respond to in narrative form - from there, AEF reviews all applications and determines schools that will move onto the 2nd round - the school site visit. If ACA were to be awarded a visit it would be in either November, December, or January.
We are looking forward to hearing soon if ACA has been selected for a site visit!
One of the awesome things about the A+ application is that we get to highlight a variety of programs that make ACA unique. Here are a few of the programs that were highlighted:
Cleaning with Meaning
School Participatory Budgeting
Responsibility Centered Discipline (RCD)
Our Reset Room
Zearn (Our Math Curriculum)
Bulldog Parent Committee
Schoolwide Culture Rubric
We will be highlighting these programs over the next few weeks, so you, parents, also have a better idea of what happens during the day at ACA. We are excited to share all of these programs with you!
