Arizona Department Of Education Launches Tool To Track School Learning Models During COVID-19 Pandemic

The Arizona Department of Education has released a statewide tool that tracks whether schools are in distance, hybrid or in-person learning models.

The tool, which can be found on the education department’s website, gathers self-reported data from Arizona’s 15 county superintendents and individual charter school operators. 

State Superintendent Kathy Hoffman said that with no indication of COVID-19 cases slowing in the coming weeks, most schools are opting for distance learning. She says this leaves students, educators and families in need of additional support for child care, internet service, family leave, housing and more. 

Hoffman is disappointed that the state and country have failed to take a proactive approach to curb the winter surge of COVID-19. She urges Gov. Doug Ducey and state lawmakers to consider these issues immediately.
