We hope this communication finds you and your family healthy. These past weeks have presented challenges for everyone as we try new venues to assist you and your family with academics and support while things return to “normality.” It is great seeing some parents when they come and pick up the homework packet and breakfast/lunch for their kiddoes. Be assured, we miss them all!
Since Governor Doug Ducey ordered all schools to be closed since our spring break, our teachers and staff are in communication with parents and/or students during this time of “TIA Online Learning.” We understand that routines and structures have changed and our teachers have embraced new ways of teaching and reaching out for educational opportunities. These efforts have shown through your child’s participation on Facebook, Khan Academy, working on the Homework Packets, and maintaining communication with their classroom teacher. We hope to continue with this connection through the end of the school year and maybe even through the summer to ensure educational growth for your children.
Although attendance will not be taken for the fourth quarter, your child must participate in the above-mentioned activities. Teachers will document fourth quarter assignments and performance (not for a grade) so that parents will receive information on their student’s progress and to maintain a record of learning opportunities. Report cards will be issued at the end of the school year. While report cards will not contain grades for the fourth quarter, teachers will provide comments to parents as well as indicate whether or not students are promoted to the next grade level. Retention decisions will be based on their student’s mastery of standards through the third quarter. Teachers will not retain a student who is unable to participate in learning at home due to barriers created by the public health emergency.
HB 2910 cancels the statewide assessment (AzM2, AIMS Science Test and MSAA) for the 2019-2020 school year for all students. In addition, since students will not be taking AzM2 this school year, no 3rd-grade students will be retained due to Move On When Reading this year.
Please find ways for your children to engage in TIA Online Learning through the use of Khan Academy, Facebook classroom discussion groups, and homework packets (hard or soft copy). Participation is extremely important for current and future academic success. Contact us if you have any questions. We are here to serve you.

TIA Families and Community,
As most of you have already been made aware, Governor Doug Ducey has implemented the mandatory closure of all schools. This includes TIA. The safety, health, and welfare of our students and families is our top priority!
We are dedicated to keeping your children safe. We will adhere to the Governor’s mandate and our campuses will remain closed. We will do our best to keep you informed of all changes as they come.
Starting Tuesday, March 24, we are implementing a plan to provide weekly homework packs (to download or pick up at each school site in a designated area), online videos, email, our TIA website, and online educational means.
We have yet to determine if school offices will have limited hours. However, all campuses are closed during this time.
We ask for your patience and understanding during this perplexing time. Be safe, healthy, and be kind to one another.
Sincerely, Dr. J. and the Leadership Team
