Arizona Brings Discovery Ed Platform to Schools Across the State. See more state education and legislative news here

The Arizona Department of Education has partnered with Discovery Education to provide Discovery’s Experience platform to all teachers and students throughout the state.

Through the partnership, educators will have access to standards-aligned content, digital lessons and professional development tools and resources via the Discovery Educator Network (DEN) Community.
