Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman have announced an extension of school closures through the end of the 2019-2020 School Year.

During this time, the Arizona Department of Education encourages schools to continue to provide educational opportunities to students to the best of their ability. We will continue to develop and share guidance to schools regarding instructional time, statewide testing, provision of special education services, school meals, and more.

La prioridad del Departamento de Educación de Arizona (ADE, por sus siglas en inglés) es mantener escuelas públicas y comunidades saludables. Por eso, Todas las escuelas públicas y charters (K-12) de Arizona estarán cerradas hasta el fin del año escolar. Mientras las escuelas están cerradas por COVID-19 (también conocido como Coronavirus), hemos recopilado recursos para la salud de familias durante ese tiempo.
