  • April 28, 2015 Sinagua Middle School was awarded the A+ School of ExcellenceTM  designation from the Arizona Educational Foundation (AEFTM).  AEFTM   Executive Director, Bobbie O’Boyle stated in the letter written to Principal Tari Popham, “You, your staff, your students and your community are to be commended for overall excellence and for all the hard work and collaborative effort it took to earn this award.  Based on your outstanding application and a very memorable and impressive site visit to your campus, your school has truly earned the Arizona Educational Foundation’s A+ School of Excellence designation.”   Ms. O’Boyle stated in their press release, “The A+ School of Excellence™ program celebrates outstanding schools throughout Arizona and calls attention to the positive stories and successes occurring in public schools,” “We applaud these schools for doing whatever it takes to meet their students’ needs and achieving overall success despite some of the challenges that face the education community statewide.”

    Applicant schools are evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data. 


    The A+ School of Excellence™ Program was created by the Arizona Educational Foundation in 1983. Its purpose is threefold:

    § to identify and give public recognition to outstanding public schools in Arizona;

    § to make available a comprehensive framework of key criteria for school effectiveness that can serve as a basis for participatory self-assessment and planning in schools;

    § to facilitate communication and sharing of best practices within and among schools based on a common criteria related to success.


    According to the Arizona Educational Foundations website “Schools submit applications that provide demographic information, a description of current programs and practices, documentation of parent and community involvement, a profile of the school’s leadership and commitment to excellence, equity, service. Schools must demonstrate sustained high achievement or significant improvement through assessment data. Winning schools are recognized for their superior ability to identify and meet the academic and non-academic needs of their student population. Schools that earn the A+ School of Excellence™ designation retain their status for a 3-year period after which time they must reapply for the award.”

  • Five years ago, automotive teacher Brian Locke embarked on a long process to have the Automotive Program at Coconino High School certified by the National Automotive Technician Education Foundation (NATEF).  The NATEF was founded in 1983 by Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) to certify automotive education programs and help promote technician training.

     To receive this certification Mr. Locke needed to apply and meet the following criteria:

    1. Self-evaluation-

    -Curriculum must meet all the standards per NATEF.

    - Curriculum must be taught with enough seat time to meet the standards.

    -Must have meetings two times a year with and advisory committee made up of industry people,   former students and parents.                                                                     

                    -Yearly budget.

                    -Curriculum inventory.                                                                                     

                    -Tool and equipment inventory.

                    -Floor plan of the shop and class room.

                    - Student population

                    - How fees are collected.

                    - What student services are provided?

    -The teacher must have a Teacher Certification, plus 20 hours a year of industry update training and receive at least four ASE Certifications. 

    2. A representative from NATEF visited Mr. Locke’s class to review all of the above requirements. During this time three industry professionals were needed to help evaluate the criteria listed above. The representative also called at least six employers of students that have been in the program within the last three years to make sure they left the program with the knowledge they needed to enter the work force.

    Coconino High School is one of seven schools in Arizona to hold this honor.  With this certification the students in Mr. Locke’s class will leave high school with an industry standard certification and will be on par with having some technical school training which translates for them, not starting at the bottom if they choose automotive technician as a career. These programs meet industry-developed standards that result in students ready to enter the workforce or to continue their education. 

    Mr. Locke feels that this “takes the FUSD/CHS program to the next level on a national and global stage.  It has been a long and challenging process, but worth it!”
