Based on feedback gathered during the 2016 We Are Listening Tour, the updated plan includes new proposals, accomplishments from last year’s plan and progress updates for several ongoing initiatives. The executive summary highlights some of the proposals of most interest to parents.

Released on October 1, 2015, Superintendent Diane Douglas’ initial AZ Kids Can’t Wait! plan was a first-of-its-kind document designed to help fix Arizona’s education system. Superintendent Douglas built the 156-page plan, which includes more than 30 proposals on education reform, in response to parent, educator, and student feedback gathered in public meetings throughout the state.
