Superintendent Dr. Jacob A. Chávez presented the Superintendent's Award of Excellence to Jose
Salcido who is joined by his family
At the October 8, 2014 Governing Board meeting, Jose Salcido, P.E. Teacher at Castro Middle School, was awarded the Superintendent’s Award of Excellence. His nomination states, “All physical education teachers are required to be CPR certified and have their certification renewed every two years. This is training that many people receive but luckily don’t have to put into practice. On September 18th, a Castro Middle School student collapsed on his way to the bus after school. The student was unconscious and not breathing when assistance arrived. Fortunately, Jose Salcido’s CPR training kicked in and he instinctively knew what to do. Jose administered CPR until the paramedics arrived and took over. Both the doctors at the hospital and fire department staff credit Jose and his fellow staff members Cindy Eick, Julia Moreland, and Juan Hernandez, with giving this student another chance.
Cartwright District Receives a "B" from AZ Department of Education
For the third straight year, Cartwright School District received a "B" rating from the Arizona Department of Education. We are very proud of our "B" but we will continue striving for an "A". Once again, our students outperformed students in neighboring schools and districts. Cartwright students, parents, and staff are to be commended for these outstanding academic achievement gains.
We are particularly proud of Sunset and Heatherbrae schools for receiving "A" ratings for the third year in a row. Additionally, of the 1,676 schools in the State of Arizona, Sunset School is ranked #16. Congratulations to all students, staff members, and families of Sunset and Heatherbrae. Heatherbrae and Sunset were honored at the August 27th Governing Board meeting for being "A" schools.
