Here's an opportunity to let your voice be heard regarding our public schools, including curriculum, standards, facilities, energy and water conservation and the need for healthy and high performing schools.
From the 4/16/15 press release:
Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said today she will launch a statewide public tour next week to hear directly from Arizona residents about their opinions and concerns on all K-12 education issues.
The annual process includes 1) a statewide series of meetings to listen to the public; 2) recommendations from Department of Education staff based on comments grouped into categories such as standards, curriculum, instruction, general, etc.; and 3) a statewide visit to the same sites to follow up with the public on recommended actions.
The annual input from the public is likely to address many different topics, only one of which will be statewide standards.
The “We Are Listening” tour will make a total of 14 stops around the state through the end of June. Members of the public also can submit their feedback via email at HearingEveryVoice@azed.gov, online at www.azed.gov/HearingEveryVoice, or via the @azedschools Twitter account using #HearingEveryVoice.
