Ducey swings open school doors

By Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services  

Declaring it’s safe, Gov. Doug Ducey is ordering all schools to return to in-person and teacher-led instruction.

In an executive order Wednesday, the governor said that standards developed by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control show that 12 of the state’s 15 counties have sufficiently curbed Covid to the point where it is safe. That includes the state’s two largest counties.

“Arizona’s students need to be back in the classroom,” Ducey said in a prepared statement. And he said that more than half the state’s schools are open and offering at least an in-person option.

“More schools need to follow their lead and pave the way for equitable education options for every Arizona student,” he said.

There is an opt out of sorts.
