Your Opportunity to Give Input on Arizona’s Education Priorities is Here

| August 29, 2016

The state’s Department of Education is inviting all Arizonans to share their priorities for education by responding to an online survey, the results of which will be used to develop Arizona’s plan for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  kid learning photo.jpg

ESSA, which will replace No Child Left Behind as the primary federal legislation addressing the nation’s public education system, is scheduled to be implemented in the 2017-2018 school year.  ESSA allows states to set their own goals and measurements for determining student and school success but requires them to do so using a transparent process that involves students, parents, teachers and the community at large.

It has never been more critical for people in this state to let lawmakers and education policymakers know their opinions about public education in Arizona.  With some $1.5 billion in state funding cut from public education since 2008, this is your opportunity to let state officials know how strongly you support the need to fully fund public schools and give K-12 districts the resources necessary to provide up-to-date books, technology and safe classrooms for students.

The survey is available until September 30th. For a Spanish version, click here.
