There won’t be a statewide date set for the start of on-campus instruction, Arizona’s top education official said Tuesday. Instead, districts will be empowered to decide when students can return based on coronavirus conditions and health department guidelines, Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show.

“There’s not going be a date where all Arizona schools open, but instead we’re recognizing the need to use locally available public health data at the county level,” she said.

“They could even go down to the ZIP code level or the school district level. So look at that, look to see, ‘Is there a local outbreak that would prevent a school from being open, or is there high risk of community spread?’”
