Two Marana schools recognized as 2012 NCEA Higher Performing | Families
Coyote Trail Elementary School and Twin Peaks Elementary School have been named as 2012 NCEA Arizona Higher Performing Schools.
The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) awards this honor to schools who are committed to raising student achievement and to putting more students on the path to college and career readiness, regardless of student’s status.
The two Elementary School principals and the Marana Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Doug Wilson attended the second annual ‘Advancing Toward College and Career Readiness-Arizona’s Higher Performing Schools’ event on December 7, at the Desert Willow Conference Center in Phoenix.
Both Dondi Luce, principal for Twin Peaks Elementary and Dan Johnson, principal for Coyote Trail Elementary accepted the awards on behalf of their schools.
The NCEA takes the following measures into consideration when awarding honors: consistent improvement in student achievement from previous years (growth), and/or an above-predicted percentage of continuously enrolled students scoring at the Exceeds level on Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (or AIMS).
The practice of awarding Higher Performing status began in 1998, and is an annual event, with lists being released yearly for every public school in Arizona.
