Share your thoughts and ideas with your State and U.S. Lawmakers
The Arizona Legislature meets annually and makes decisions on education bills that have a major impact on the state’s educational system and your neighborhood school. State lawmakers are also responsible for creating a state budget.
A majority of Amphitheater Public School's funding comes from the state of Arizona.
The school district also receives funding from the federal government for programs such as:
- Title I (Federal funding for schools/districts with a high percentage of low-income families.)
- Special Education (Serving students with disabilities.)
- English as a Second Language (Serving English language learners.)
It is important for lawmakers to hear from the people they represent regarding:
- School funding
- Educational priorities
- Education bills
