A Message from the Superintendent….

I am excited to begin working with Arizona teachers, parents, schools and students as your new Superintendent of Public Instruction. I am committed to developing a world-class education system for Arizona and it is my mission to make necessary improvements so that every student receives the highest quality education and has the opportunity to excel in their future endeavors.

One of my top priorities as Superintendent is to establish a process that allows local voices to be heard as important educational decisions are made, including the review of the state’s standards. I believe that it is paramount that Arizona not only has the highest standards possible, but that its standards belong to Arizona and are continually improved to best represent both student and local community needs.

I also intend to be fully active and present in the education community and will be travelling around the state visiting schools, meeting with teachers and education leaders, and creating and supporting statewide partnerships and collaborations.

My ultimate goal as Superintendent is to establish Arizona as a model of educational excellence at the national level. I look forward to working with you to accomplish this goal and give Arizona students the education they deserve.

Warm regards,
Diane Douglas

State Superintendent of Public Instruction
