·         In 2013 the Ak-Chin Indian Community announced it was donating $2.6 million to MUSD, $1.3 million to be awarded in 2013-14 and $1.3 million in 2014-15. The formal Memorandum of Understanding was approved by the MUSD Governing Board at their 11/13/13 meeting. The Ak-Chin gift will fund “extras” the school district would not be able to afford without additional grant funds including: five additional secondary math teachers, five additional paraprofessionals to provide extra reading instruction to elementary students, wireless computer access at all nine schools, refurbishing 275 student computers, and several other projects.

·         The Arizona Business Education Coalition recognized Pima Butte Elementary as a 2013 Higher Performing School for the second consecutive year.

·         A three year district-wide strategic plan was completed and approved by the Governing Board in September, 2013.

·         MUSD increased its district-wide grade from “C” to “B” for 2013-14 as a result of performance on the statewide AIMS test.
