Dear Scottsdale Unified School District Family,
Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) is truly fortunate to have outstanding students, teachers and support staff as well as specialized programs that make us stand out across Arizona and the nation. It is only the end of the first quarter, and our students and teachers have already accomplished so much! See the October Letter.
The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has released its new A-F Achievement Profiles for the 2013-14 school year. Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) did well; the District received an A for a fourth consecutive year with a score of 144, our highest score ever. Nineteen schools received the highest grade of A, seven schools received B, three schools received C and one school received a D. See Grades
Sophomores in SUSD high schools will have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT at no cost to parents. “By offering the PSAT/NMSQT to all sophomores at no cost, it will provide parents, students and the schools with useful information to identify areas that require more attention for post-secondary goals,” said Dr. Mitch von Gnechten, executive director of Secondary Schools. “The results of the test will help our students set goals for the next two years and will help increase college and career readiness.” See PSAT/NMSQT
We are pleased to Congratulate and Recognize the following
2 Students for achieving a Perfect ACT Score!
Please join Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) to learn factual information about the Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Override that will be on the November ballot.

Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2015:
At Cilento Photography, we take great pride in the level of service we
provide to you and your school. Knowing some of you may have had a
difficult time getting photographed by the September 1st deadline (for a
complimentary yearbook session), we are waiving the $10 fee that would
normally be charged after this deadline.
(And if you recently paid for your yearbook session, we’d be happy to apply that to your order or offer you a refund.)
For us to best serve you and your school, if you have not been
photographed, we ask that you contact us right away to schedule your
appointment. Because availability becomes quite limited the closer we get
to your deadline, the sooner you can contact us, the greater flexibility we’ll
have to accommodate your schedule.
To schedule your appointment, please call us at 480-947-4467. We have a
variety of indoor and outdoor session types to choose from, or you may
take advantage of the complimentary yearbook session.
Finally, please note that we are experiencing extremely high volume
(both in calls and photography sessions) due to upcoming deadlines. We ask you
for your patience and thank you in advance for you for allowing us to serve you.
