Snowflake USD Receives an A

AzMERIT Results Are In
What Are You Doing to Improve Your Game?

"I remember the great Magic Johnson beating the Celtics in Game 4 of the 1987 NBA Finals with a "junior sky-hook" shot.

One reason I remember it is because he shared in the post-game interview that he had been working on that "junior sky-hook" all season long as something to add to his arsenal and improve his game. 

That always stuck with me - that someone at the pinnacle of success would still work on ways to get better at his craft. 

I share this because as I look at the image of the Vail USD high school administrators and teachers working together in a recent "Data Dig" of AzMERIT results, I see that same spirit of Magic Johnson at play. 

In a school district where 89% of the 19 schools are "A" rated, these educators are coming together - working on their "game" - trying to make improvements - all in the spirit of getting better.

I saw the same thing at another Data Dig where the Snowflake School District was working on ways to improve, despite learning just a week prior that all of their schools are now "A" rated schools.

Vail and Snowflake are two of the many BT partners whose AzMERIT scores resulted in "A" schools or improved letter grades.

Congratulations to all schools who are feeling positive about their results.

That said, whether you are an "A" rated school or not, it is good and healthy to remember...

As such, I hope you will notice and take advantage of the multiple opportunities to work on our "game" that are included in this newsletter.

If we can assist in any way, through the advertised BT workshops or other avenues, we are willing and honored to do so.

Thank you for your continued partnership."
