Principal Contact

During these last two weeks of the school year, please do not reach out to principals for anything that is non-urgent. While I know this is a slower time of year for many of you as the semester wraps up, it is the most hectic time of year for our principals. In order to help them keep their head above water as we finish out the school year, please table all meeting requests and non-urgent emails until June. Thank you!


If you currently use DocuSign for any documents within your department, please reach out to Nichole to let her know.

Kelly - Upcoming out of the office dates

I leave for vacation on Friday, May 27th and will return to work on Monday, June 6th*. I will not be on email much during this time, but you can reach me on my cell with any emergencies. Please reach out to Lyndsey for any pressing needs.

*I leave to travel to Herndon on Monday, June 6th, so while I won't be on vacation, I will still be a bit unreachable while I'm in the air. I return from Herndon late Wednesday (6/8) night.

Data & Metrics

Scantron - Metrics are current as of Monday, 5/16. Congratulations AZVA HS for reaching 95% in all areas, and to ISAZ for being extremely close! Curriculum locks are underway in K8 and I'm sure these numbers will rise dramatically now that those are in place.

Reregistration - AZVA is nearing the 100% mark but ISAZ has a ways to go. As you have Class Connect sessions, phone calls with students, and any other contact, please remind students to have their LC indicate their re-registration status for next year.
