Students will not have to make up lost time due to COVID-19

 Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation to support schools during this crisis. The legislation, HB-2910, was introduced by Representative Michelle Udall and received unanimous support in both the House and the Senate. Public schools in the state are not required to extend the number of school days or add additional instructional hours to make up for the days missed after the statewide closure ends. The testing window for statewide assessments is also extended through May 31-st. All school employees, including hourly employees, will continue to be paid during the closures. Additionally, beginning Monday, schools will offer students general education through alternative formats for the duration of the closure.
