    Superintendent Diane Douglas and the Arizona Department of Education are pleased to announce the “AZ Kids Can’t Afford to Wait!” plan, a comprehensive strategy to fix Arizona’s education system.

    AZ Kids Can’t Afford to Wait Plan

    After this year’s statewide “We Are Listening Tour” to hear the concerns and suggestions of educators, parents and students regarding Arizona’s education system, Superintendent Douglas compiled all of the comments. Using the information heard during 14 meetings throughout the state, in addition to the comments submitted via the Arizona Department of Education’s website and social media sites, and input during her campaign appearances, she has developed these proposals.

    We Heard You Tour

    The “We Heard You Tour” will be an opportunity for Arizonans to provide feedback on the proposals in “AZ Kids Can’t Afford to Wait!” It will make 10 stops across the state, during which Superintendent Douglas will discuss the initiatives she has proposed and take questions from those in attendance. We hope to see you at one of the stops and look forward to hearing from you!
