• 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
