Approved Private Day icon Disclaimer when approving private day schools
The approval activities and oversight of the Arizona Department of Education for approved private day schools does not relieve school districts of their responsibility to monitor individual students enrolled in these programs. Approval by the Arizona Department of Education does not make the Department a guarantor or insurer for services or programs provided to individual students.
