The Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF) will host information sessions on the A+ Schools of Excellence program.

A+ Schools of Excellence is a comprehensive school assessment program that challenges school teams to work together to identify areas of excellence in teaching, learning, climate, community building, and leadership. A+ Schools are celebrated and recognized as outstanding. Earning the prestigious A+ designation spotlights the positive successes happening in public schools every day.

AEF is holding information sessions for schools interested in applying. The sessions will go over the application and have current A+ principals give personal insight about what it takes to earn the designation and what it means to a community.

One session starts 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4 at Kyrene Traditional Academy (Chandler), followed by another 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12 at Acacia Elementary School (North Phoenix).
