Important AIMS Information

February 20, 2015

Dear Education Stakeholder,

Today Senate Bill 1191 was signed into law, immediately ending the AIMS high school graduation requirement. This action means that any students scheduled to take one or more sections of the AIMS test next week will no longer be required to do so.

Until today, students had to pass the reading, writing and mathematics portions of the AIMS test in order to receive a high school diploma. The requirement was previously set to expire December 31, 2016.

Testing will be still be available next week for those students wishing to take AIMS for scholarship eligibility or other personal reasons. Parents or families with questions about testing availability in these situations should contact their student's school.

Future planned administrations of the test will be canceled.


Please read the following information about the change regarding AIMS as a graduation requirement.

 From Arizona Department of Education: Students no longer need to meet the AIMS requirement in order to graduate and may be issued a diploma as 2015 graduates if they have satisfied all state credit requirements and any additional local requirements. Please note that students affected by this policy change should be held to the current state minimum credit requirements, not the requirements that may have been in place the year they were initially scheduled to graduate. (Please be advised that Douglas High School, in addition to the minimum state requirements, requires 24 credits for graduation including 1 credit of PE/Health and two years of the same foreign language or two credits in the same CTE program.)

Students who did not graduate in 2012, 2013, or 2014 due to AIMS should contact the DHS front office at 520-364-3462 or come in for more information.
