Tucson Unified District (TUSD)

The Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) can be compared with other districts in the region, as well as with state and national districts as a whole. We can also compare performances within district along dimensions made salient by Federal Legislation concerned with performance goals across racial and economic groups. We have begun this review with an analysis of differences between TUSD and the state in math and reading for 2009 and 2011. We have also examined differences in performance of White and Hispanic students. These differences in average scores are referred to as “gaps.” We note that all of these gaps have narrowed between 2009 and 2011.
