PHOENIX – Governor Doug Ducey’s Classrooms First Initiative Council will hold its next meeting at the Yavapai County Education Service Agency in Prescott on Thursday, October 8.

(The working group meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, with the full council meeting at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8 at the Yavapai County Education Service Agency, Giffin/Taylor Training Room, 2970 Centerpointe E. Drive, Prescott).

The Council, announced by Governor Ducey in May, is tasked with modernizing the school finance code to ensure adequate funding is made available for teachers and classroom instruction. Council members presented preliminary recommendations on September 22.

“The Classrooms First Council is working hard to fulfill the charge of the governor by working in the most transparent and inclusive manner possible for the good of all Arizonans,” said council member Tim Carter, Yavapai County School Superintendent. “It is our hope that by inviting stakeholder groups and individuals to join our meetings in Prescott on October 8th and in Tucson on October 29th, it will make the process of receiving feedback even more accessible for the public and more welcoming of all views.”
