Eagles News

We’re always trying to improve communication between home and school; especially since we know that it’s difficult for middle schoolers to keep their parents informed about what’s happening on campus. We’ll be placing newsworthy information on this page so you don’t have to hound your child for information. It’s a win-win situation!

Governing Board Vacancy

Robert Ethridge has informed Pima County School Superintendent Dustin J. Williams of his resignation from the Altar Valley Elementary School District Governing Board effective March 6, 2024.

“I would like to personally thank Mr. Ethridge for his dedication and service towards education in the Altar Valley community. I wish him much success in his new endeavors. Our office will help expedite the governing board vacancy process going forward,” said Superintendent Williams.

As per ARS 15-302, “within thirty days after notification of a vacancy, the school district governing board may submit up to three names to the county school superintendent for consideration of an appointment to fill the vacancy. The county school superintendent is not required to appoint a governing board member from the list of names submitted by the governing board.”

Out of respect to the process, Pima County School Superintendent Williams will now review and consider any qualified candidate who is interested in filling the vacancy. Qualified candidates who would like to be considered for the vacancy must submit an affidavit of qualification and candidate appointment questionnaire to the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office by March 20, at 5:00 p.m. If interested, please see the online application. Please email the completed packet or hand-deliver it to our office at 200 North Stone Avenue.

All applications will be thoroughly reviewed and considered by Superintendent Williams and his leadership team. The appointment will begin on the date of appointment and will continue through December 31, 2024. This position will be on the November 2024 General Election Ballot as a four-year term.

Cleaning All the Way to the Border
