Dear TUHSD Community,
I am pleased to inform you that TUHSD has officially been recommended for accreditation by the international AdvancED accreditation group. Accreditation from AdvancED ensures that our students’ credits can easily transfer from one school to another.
The district hosted a five-member AdvancED team for three days in December. During the visit, the team interviewed 186 district stakeholders, including 66 students. They visited classrooms and assessed learning using their Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool to determine if students were supported, provided opportunities to participate in learning, and if teachers created activities to engage all learners. The AdvancED accreditation process confirmed that TUHSD is a district with highly qualified teachers and administrators, a district that challenges students to achieve, and a welcoming place for all stakeholders.
The accreditation process also provided TUHSD with insight for setting future goals to further enhance the education of our students. AdvancED recently increased the rigor of its review and reporting process for schools that apply for accreditation. The process required more reporting and a host of surveys and interviews.
In our final report, the review team noted “powerful practices” that made TUHSD worthy of accreditation. These “powerful practices” include:
TUHSD is committed to meeting the needs of all students. We focus on providing a quality education for all who enter. Thank you for your continued support of TUHSD.
Yours in education,
The Tolleson swimming pool, located at 9414 W. Van Buren Street, will open for swimming on Monday, June 10. New this year is the Tolleson Tidalwaves, a summer swim team, and evening swimming lessons. Please view this flier for additional information.
