Dear Bobcat Parents/Guardians,

    For the third year in a row, Central High graduates continue to demonstrate progress in the areas of cohort graduation rates, college applications/acceptances, and scholarship earnings. The class of 2017 exceeded our expectations by achieving a 100% rate in our college application campaign as well as an increase rate in early FAFSA completions. As a result of their efforts, the class of 2017 earned almost $4 million dollars in scholarship money. In addition to the financial rewards, the class of 2017 maintained a 93% graduation rate as a class and our students were accepted to our local universities – ASU, UofA, and NAU – as well as the University of Hawaii, Smith College (Massachusetts), Lewis and Clark (Oregon), and New Mexico State University. Congratulations to the Class of 2017!

    As we make plans for the 2017-2018 school year, we are excited about our future and anticipate a great year for Central High School and our students. Our time during the summer has been busy with the hiring of new teachers/support staff, strengthening our systems of collaboration such as our Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s), and identifying academic interventions as well as enrichment opportunities in conjunction with our Advisory period.

  • Governing Board Calls for November Bond and Budget Override Election

    The Phoenix Union High School District Governing Board has called for a 15 percent Maintenance and Operations Budget Override and Bond election for November 7, 2017.  The action was taken at the May 4 Governing Board meeting.

    The election will be a mailed ballot-only election with ballots mailed to qualified electors residing within the District.

    The override asks voters for authorization to continue the current 15 percent override for  fiscal year 2018-2019 and six subsequent years.  This would be a continuation of the existing override approved by voters in 2013.  There would be no additional taxes if the override is approved.  The override provides for over 400 teachers and support staff that directly impacts students and student achievement.

    The bond would be for $269 million to fund capital improvements over and above those funded by the state.  The District annual capital budget has been cut from $21 million to just under $2 million since the Recession.  The bulk of the bond would fund maintenance, and renovation of school buildings and technology.
