The newest school performance scorecard since the start of the pandemic shows improvements in several districts.

The Arizona State Board of Education measures school performance several ways, including state test scores, and assigns each school a letter grade.

According to a statement from Dysart Unified School District, located in the northwest Valley, it has doubled its number of schools with an “A” grade since 2019.

In that same time, the Peoria Unified School District, also serving the Northwest Valley, saw grade improvement that adds up to 37 of its 42 schools scoring a B or higher.

The deadline for schools to appeal their grade is Tuesday. Final grades will be released in December, or early next year.
