Join Us in Supporting Arizona Kids This Legislative Session

We are just a few days away from the start of the legislative session and CAA has a full list of priorities we are working on. Here are just few:

  • Raise the academic performance of English Learners by repealing failed English-only laws and giving districts the flexibility to adopt evidence-based dual language instruction.
  • Provide safe, quality child care options for working parents of young children by increasing child care subsidy reimbursement rates.
  • Advocate for more financial assistance and program support for grandparents raising grandchildren and other kinship caregivers so they can provide for the children in their care.

You can find out more about our legislative agenda by clicking here. We will update you as the legislative session goes on!

If you didn't see Tuesday’s episode of Arizona Horizon, I had an opportunity to provide a sneak peek of our legislative wish list.
