In-person teacher certification assistance returns to Tucson
AZED restores service for southern Arizona
TUCSON – The Arizona Department of Education has restored in-person teacher certification assistance at the department’s downtown Tucson office, making it available there for the first time since 2019.
Teachers must still go online to begin and complete the certification process, but with this improvement the Tucson office will once again have in-person staff available to assist teachers who may have technical questions or trouble managing multiple certifications.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne said, “When I returned to this office in January, I was shocked that there was no in-person certification service for Tucson and southern Arizona. We had provided this in my earlier terms as Superintendent and I made it a priority to restore it to make sure we are an organization that is committed to serving all of Arizona.”
Certification assistance is available Thursdays from 12:30 P.M. - 4:30 P.M. and Fridays 8:30 A.M. - 12:30 P.M at the AZED offices located at 416 W. Congress St., Suite 100 in Tucson.
