Superintendent Dr. David J. Peterson's April Letter
This is a busy time of year for all at Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD), and it’s hard to believe that we only have eight weeks left in the school year. We still have a lot of work ahead of us. As I write this, we are in the middle of AIMS testing. Our teachers have done a great job and our students are well prepared! During this school year, we have had many student and staff accomplishments of which we are extremely proud. See April Letter

K-8 Specials for 2014-2015

With the reduction of dollars from the M & O Override, K- 5 elementary specials (art, music, PE) will be reduced in half(A/B schedule) for the 2014-2015 school year.  You may be aware that on April 11, 2014 the Governing Board voted unanimously to adopt a modified schedule for K-5 elementary schools that includes a Wednesday early release.  This option was not a viable options for K-8 schools as it would require two release times for the school as well as impact transportation and families with multiple grade level children.  Instead, we will accommodate the necessary prep time for K-5 teachers by having an extended lunch/recess time. 

 

This decision is to accommodate the loss of half of the specials (art, music, PE)  in elementary schools to help absorb the reduction of the M & O override while allowing the start and end time to remain consistent for the K-8. 

 

The K-5 elementary school schedule for 2014-2015 school year protects the integrity of instructional time for Language Arts, math, science, and social studies while at the same time accounting for the impact of lost teacher planning time through the reduction of elementary specials.
