Letter from Superintendent Conger

The Arizona Department of Education recently released official school letter grades for 2017-2018. The letter grade for 2017-2018 that Bowie Elementary received was a “D” grade. Immediately, starting in the spring of 2018, we began developing a plan for school improvement. There are six principles to what is referred to as an integrated action plan or school improvement plan:

  1. Effective Leadership
  2. Effective Teachers & Instruction
  3. Effective Organization of Time
  4. Effective Curriculum
  5. Culture, Climate, and Conditions
  6. Family Engagement

As for 2017-2018, one of the root cause analysis findings was the lack of having an effective curriculum. This is something that we improved upon greatly in 2018-2019.

We encourage you to read Superintendent Conger's letter in its entirety.
