Attention juniors and parents of juniors: In 2015, the Arizona legislature passed the American Civics Act (House Bill 2064) requiring the graduating class of 2017 to pass a civics test based on the United States Immigration and Naturalization civics questions. Students will be required to score 60% or higher in order to graduate from high school or obtain a high school equivalency certificates. Students may retake the test as many times as necessary to pass. Students receiving special education services are exempt from obtaining a passing score unless required by an IEP.
To prepare for this test, please this Study Guide for Arizona Civics Test.

Are you interested in learning the percentage of students that have been immunized in our schools?
Arizona Department of Health Services provides immunization data for all Arizona schools, including TUSD schools. This data is obtained through the annual Immunization Data Report, a self-report survey that each school is required to complete and submit to the Arizona Department of Health Services Immunization Office by November 15th each year per Arizona Administrative Code R9-6-707. It assesses the coverage and exemption data for child care/preschool, kindergarten and 6th grade.
Through this information, parents and guardians can see what percentage of students have received immunizations at their children's schools.
