Arizona Public Schools are at Risk of Closing!

Arizona public schools may be shutting down on April 1 (and that’s NOT an April Fool’s joke!). This potential crisis is due to a decades’ old aggregate expenditure limit. In prior years, the state legislature has voted, usually unanimously, to waive the limit, allowing the schools to spend the money that has already been allocated. However, this year, the necessary bills have not yet been sent to committee.

District public schools stand to lose approximately $1.2 billion. The waiver must be passed by March 1, 2022 to avoid layoffs, program cuts, and possibly an early end to the school year. Charter schools are not affected by the expenditure limit.

The resolutions that need to be passed for waiver are HCR2012 and SCR1022. An additional bill, SCR1023, would repeal the limit.

Please contact the following legislators and ask them to advance these bills to avert a financial crisis for our schools:
* Sen. Karen Fann (Republican), President of the Senate: 602-926-5874; [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]) .
* Rep. Russell Bowers (Republican), Speaker of the House: 602-926-3128;[email protected] (mailto:[email protected]) .

Thank you for supporting our schools!
