Arizona’s students will have two more weeks of summer vacation.
In cooperation with Superintendent Kathy Hoffman, Gov. Doug Ducey announced Monday that the state would back off the planned starting date for schools to Aug. 17.
The announcement comes as Arizona sees one of the nation’s highest percentages of reported daily cases.
“We want to bring as much certainty as possible for Arizona’s schools,” Ducey said. “Our objective is to educate our kids as best as possible in the safest possible environment.”
