Superintendent's Message

  • Balsz Students, Parents and Guardians, and Community Stakeholders;

    What a great start to the third quarter of school!

    We have been busy with reviewing many exciting projects with the Bond that was passed due to your supportive votes!  We look forward to impacting the lives of our students through various ways of enhancing environments for safety, security, and ways to have fun!  We look forward to you seeing the new projects developing throughout Balsz and see the students enjoying these enhancements at their school. 

    Many of you may have been hearing concerns about something called the Aggregate Expenditure Limit, or AEL, that all traditional public schools in Arizona are dealing with in regards to state funding.  If you are looking for more information here is a great site that might offer you answers.  Please know that the Balsz Elementary School District is committed to making sure that the state budget issues will not affect our students’ learning opportunities to grow and develop in supportive, caring spaces. 

    During the third and fourth quarters, all Balsz students have a chance to offer their best efforts on assessments that help determine areas of increased support and celebration.  It is important that students attend class daily during the academic assessments.  We know our students are hard at work with caring teachers and we appreciate all that you do in our collective efforts to strive for excellence with each student.


    Well Wishes,


    George J. Barnes, Ed.D.
