With the announcement from Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman that schools will be closed through the remainder of the school year, the ACLU of Arizona’s Demand to Learn Campaign is working to inform school officials that all measures must be taken to minimize the impact of COVID-19 and find ways to support Arizona’s most vulnerable and underresourced students.

When schools close, parents and guardians need to make unexpected arrangements for childcare, students lose instructional time and school meals, and families lose access to other essential services their schools traditionally provide. It is essential that school administrators of all types — traditional district, charter, private, and alternative — find ways to maintain these services while addressing the public health concerns posed by the outbreak.
