Superintendent Dr. David J. Peterson's September Letter

Dear Scottsdale Unified School District Family,

The 2014-15 school year is off to a great start! It is hard to believe that we are already done with our first month of school. During the first few days of school, I was able to visit every school in the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD). Great things are going on in our classrooms – thank you all for a positive start to the new school year. Additionally, members of my Leadership Team visited campuses to help ensure an excellent beginning. It is great to see everyone working together on behalf of students. 
See the September Letter.

Sophomores in SUSD high schools will have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT at no cost to parents. “By offering the PSAT/NMSQT to all sophomores at no cost, it will provide parents, students and the schools with useful information to identify areas that require more attention for post-secondary goals,” said Dr. Mitch von Gnechten, executive director of Secondary Schools. “The results of the test will help our students set goals for the next two years and will help increase college and career readiness.” See PSAT/NMSQT
