Parents can now apply to get their kids caught up in school from Gov. Doug Ducey’s summer camp program he announced in his State of the State speech in January.

It's designed to help students catch up with what they may have missed due to COVID-19. Ducey said last week the focus will be on reading, math and American civics. He tapped Lisa Graham Keegan, former state schools superintendent, to chair the new initiative, which will be free and funded by $100 million from federal COVID-19 aid.

The Show spoke with Graham Keegan to discuss the program, which is expected to last for eight weeks this summer.
