2018–2019 District Family Handbook

We have the new Queen Creek Unified School District Family Handbook. Within the handbook are guidelines that the district has established and designed to promote student success. The guidelines for student conduct are to ensure a safe learning environment for each and every student as well as to create a safe environment for the faculty and staff. In addition, you will find in the handbook information about health offices, special services, transportation, the strategic plan, registration and other pertinent information. For information specific to your school, you will want to access your school’s student handbook, when appropriate. We commit to doing our part to communicate more effectively with our families to benefit our students. We hope that you have a wonderful school year.
