Proactive statewide public school drinking water screening program
Chandler Unified School District is participating in a proactive statewide public school drinking water lead screening program sponsored by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). ADEQ is coordinating this screening program with multiple state and local agencies, public water systems, public schools and other parties. While drinking water is not considered to be a common source of lead in Arizona, eliminating lead in drinking water is an important step to reducing your child’s overall exposure to lead.
Please visit the ADEQ website for detailed information about the statewide public school drinking water screening program for lead.
As part of our continuing commitment to provide a safe environment for both students and staff, please be assured that we will provide you with timely updates.
San Marcos Teacher Named Exemplary
Lauren Delfino-Karl, second grade teacher at San Marcos Elementary School, was named a 2016 Rodel Exemplary Teacher over the Thanksgiving weekend. She is one of 15 educators across the state recognized by Rodel.
CUSD Community Relations Department has been nominated for six Emmy Awards. The honor comes after the district's media production department, under the direction of Michael Holland, entered a documentary video about district history into the Rocky Mountain Southwest Regional Emmy Awards competition. The program, called The History of Chandler Schools, Part 3: Summary of a Century, was judged by members of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and deemed worthy of nominations for the coveted award. Emmy trophies will be handed out to selected recipients at an awards event on October 17.
The program is narrated by John Prothro, teacher at Perry High.
The nominated video is the last of a three-part series on the history of the district. The CUSD production team took home three awards for part 2 of the series in 2014. All three parts can be seen on the CET99.org Youtube channel.
