Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! While many of us enter this year with cautious optimism, we here at Arizona Department of Education hope this school year brings many opportunities for student and teacher growth. While growth can certainly feel challenging and daunting, we come away with new learning, greater understanding and often times new ways to tackle problems. One thing that we are always focusing on is how to tackle the problem of expanding access to all students to Arts Education. If your school or district has made strides in increasing access to Arts Education recently, be sure to reach out and let our office know! We would love to share your ideas with schools around the state.
