Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2017

Well GCB1, I can tell you from a parent's perspective that we pulled our son out of TUSD & purposefully relocated to live in the Vail School district. We did not want our son to go to Secrest Middle School or any other TUSD School for that matter. TUSD has completely failed our child. He has special learning disabilities and thy did nothing to educate him.

We were not alone either. We met at least twenty other parents who likewise moved out of TUSD and relocated to Vail specifically for their excellence in education. And that was just at one school. Now multiply that by how many schools in the Vail District. Then you will begin to understand why TUSD's numbers are shrinking while other school districts in the area are increasing. No great mystery to me

Oh and for the record when our son entered 6th grade @ Desert Sky Middle school, he was behind by 3.5 grade levels. Now entering 7th grade and in the second quarter he has caught up to just below the 6th grade level. He still has challenges, and will likely never really "catch-up" to his proper grade level. But I'm betting when he is ready to graduate from Highschool he will have a much better education that what he would have received in TUSD!!

So, say what you will about Mr Huppinthal and his comments. I for one am inclined to give them credence. My son and our situation is just one of hundreds of TUSD ESCAPEES.
