 Math Project Dishes Out Extra Helping of Fun

Canyon View third grade teachers Mandy Campbell and Mary Clark designed a learning project where students developed plans to open their own food truck companies.  Tasks included writing business plans, researching logos, picking menu items, and calculating quantities to determine servings and prices.  On the project’s final day, at the high-energy Food Truck Festival, they practiced customer service skills as they sold "treats" out of the colorful food trucks that they constructed.

 CFSD Schools Earn Straight A's

FH Students collaborating

All CFSD schools received A’s in the Arizona Department of Education release of the 2021-2022 A-F Letter Grades, which are given to all public schools statewide.
“We believe that our CFSD schools are performing well because we have highly capable people working with our students in a culture of high expectations,” says Mary Kamerzell, Superintendent. “Highly competent, caring teachers supported by strong school principals in partnership with parents is a winning combination.”
The A-F Letter Grade Accountability System, adopted by the State Board of Education, uses a range of metrics to measure student learning with a focus on proficiency and growth, students’ readiness to succeed in a career or postsecondary enrollment, and graduation rate. To receive an A grade (Excellent) schools must demonstrate distinguished performance on statewide assessments, significant student growth, students on track to proficiency, and overall performance that is significantly higher than the state's average.

What is the District’s Open Enrollment Program?

Open enrollment is a state law that allows students to attend schools outside of their resident school if the receiving school has the capacity to accept them. CFSD residents who wish to attend a school other than their home area school must apply under the open enrollment program as well as non-resident families.
