AzMERIT scores

About Arizona's AzMERIT scores:

AzMERIT scores can indicate a Student’s overall progress or regression.  Students and parents should carefully compare scores from this year’s AzMERIT exam to last year’s exam and other standardized exams (i.e. AIMS).  If the scores have not improved or have dropped, this may be a sign that the student needs more special education services and supports in school, and perhaps another evaluation. You will have received the scores alrady.  Parents of children expected to enter 4th grade are also being told whether the child will be retained (held back).
Arizona special educaton attorneys Lori Kirsch-Goodwin and Hope Kirsch recommend that if your child is struggling and does not have a 504 Plan or an IEP, ask the school for an evaluation for special education and related services.  Put all requests in WRITING; email is fine.
