Arizona Executive Director

PHOENIX, AZ – Stand for Children Arizona Executive Director Rebecca Gau issued the following statement in response to the legislature passage of HB2910:

“We applaud the bipartisan support and unanimous passage of this much-needed school closure bill. This legislation will help our communities deal with the unintended consequences of school closures while ensuring our schools’ funding remains unharmed. This bipartisan legislation provides employment stability for teachers and other school employees, and it helps expand alternative learning opportunities. We hope the legislature will continue to work in this bipartisan matter on the budget in the coming week. Now is not a time for partisan politics but rather for us to come together to move Arizona forward.”
