Arizona Parental Rights Handbook Open Book 

In the 2020 Arizona Legislative Session, the Legislature established ARS § 15- 249.16 which requires the ADE to establish and post a statutory handbook of parental rights, which has been done. Additionally, each school district and charter school must prominently post a link to the statutory handbook of parental rights on a publicly accessible portion of their website. 
The statutory handbook can be accessed at the following link:

Our highly qualified teachers and caring staff work hand-in-hand with the supportive families in our surrounding community. We serve our kindergarten through fifth-grade students with pride. Please browse through our site.
