Spring AIMS Testing Cancelled
Arizona signed Senate Bill 1191 (graduation; passing test score; moratorium) into law. AIMS testing is cancelled because of new Arizona State Legislation. We will hold classes on a regular schedule all week.
SB1191 prohibits the requirement for a student to obtain a passing score on a standardized test in order to graduate during school years: 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, or 2017-18 and exempts the civics exam from the moratorium.
SB1191 includes an emergency clause, meaning it is effective immediately. This is critical, as AIMS retesting was scheduled in schools on Tuesday, February 24.
Please contact the district with any questions, and read the Governor’s statement.
