Expect More Arizona

The “We Are Listening Tour,” conducted by Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas will be held:

  • From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 11 at Prescott High School, Prescott
  • From 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 13 at Coconino High School, 2801 N. Izabel St., Flagstaff
  • 5 p.m. Thursday, June 18 at the Navajo Nation Council Chambers in Window Rock
  • 9 a.m. Saturday, June 20 at the Round Valley Dome in Springerville

The tour is designed to gather feedback from all Arizonans on K-12 education issues they are facing, the department reported.

The annual process includes 1) a statewide series of meetings to listen to the public; 2) recommendations from the department’s staff based on comments grouped into categories such as standards, curriculum, instruction, general, etc.; and 3) a statewide visit to the same sites to follow up with the public on recommended actions, the department reported.

In addition to hearing directly from Arizonans at “We Are Listening Tour” events, Douglas is also accepting comments via email to ensure she receives input from as many people as possible, Expect More Arizona reported earlier this month.

Are you concerned about education funding, teacher salaries, or keeping rigorous academic standards in Arizona classrooms? Do you have suggestions to share about what’s working in K-12 education or what’s not?

Your thoughts on these issues and many others are important for the Superintendent to hear. Will you email the Superintendent with your feedback today? 

In addition to hearing directly from Arizonans at the events, the Superintendent is accepting comments via email to ensure she receives input from as many people as possible.
