The Tucson Unified School District Governing Board approved the calendar for the 2016-17 school year at the November 10 board meeting. The adopted calendar is very similar to the 2015-16 calendar, with a start date in the first week of August. Last year, TUSD conducted an online survey regarding the school calendar, and the model that this calendar was based on was the overwhelming favorite. For more information, please see the 2016-2017 Calendar webpage.

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.
