Our Governing Board
The individuals on our school board are elected community members who volunteer their time to benefit our school district and the students who attend our schools. They help the district plan, budget, and implement school programs and ensure fiscal responsibility.
The AUSD Governing Board, in collaboration with the Arizona School Boards Association (ASBA) staff, focuses on setting goals for the governing board. These goals guide the governing board and administration throughout the school year in the Ajo Unified School District.
Governing Board Goals:
- Goal 1: The governing board will receive beginning, middle, and end-of-the-year student data with a focus on reading scores demonstrating growth on the DIBELS Reading Benchmarks and Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Benchmarks. We will implement instructional strategies, resources, and professional development such as Beyond Textbooks (Professional Learning Communities, formative assessments, reteaching, data analysis) and mClass training to support reading growth.
- Goal 2: Communication will be strategic and collaborative with all stakeholders. This communication establishes trust and builds relationships with students, staff, families, and the Ajo Unified School District Community.
- Goal 3: Ajo Unified School District will continue with the strategic direction focused on the critical academic areas of opportunity for our students. The administration and the leadership team will ensure that curriculum and instruction resources (Beyond Textbooks, mClass, reading intervention, math, and science curriculum) align with state and district standards.
