Amazing Eagle Families,
This weekend we were notified of our letter grade. The result is not what we expected with the improvements we have made last year and continue to make this year. Santa Rita expected higher and we are appealing the data utilized to determine the letter grade of an F. Our students are hard workers who are dedicated to their learning. They are bright and do not allow anything to stop them from pursuing their goals. Santa Rita teachers go above and beyond to support the educational needs of each and every student. For example, our team teachers spent their summer in professional development trainings to continue empowering and inspiring our students. Santa Rita is home to the only premier Dual Enrollment Program and Career and Technical Education Programs. Our faculty continues to work hard at promoting academic success, creating outstanding program offerings, while building relationships with our students. We thank everyone, including our amazing community and Eagle families, for helping us improve and promote an environment of strength and perseverance. Santa Rita is Home of the Eagles and Eagles always soar above the rest. We appreciate your patience as we work through our improvement process.
