k-12 schools

Arizona’s students will be staying home for two weeks longer as the state works to lessen the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.


Schools in a rural southeastern Arizona town were closed Thursday while health officials determine whether some students had been exposed to the coronavirus. 

A Lake Havasu City school has suspended about 50 students after they held a demonstration to protest the dismissal of a teacher.

A new report says teaching vacancies throughout Arizona have increased by more than 150 positions compared to last year. 

The Flagstaff Unified School District has launched an app that aims to meet the smartphone generation where they are. The Anonymous Alerts app allows students, parents and others to report information to the district…everything from concerns about bullying and mental health, to event schedules and even icy school sidewalks. It allows users to remain anonymous so they can seek help without fear of social reprisal. KNAU’s Zac Ziegler spoke with FUSD’s Zachery Fountain about the app.
