There was no firm date announced for the start of in-classroom schooling in Arizona during Gov. Doug Ducey’s COVID update this afternoon.  But during the press conference, the governor announced additional resources and what he called “flexibility and clarity” for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey together with State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced Sunday that Arizona schools, including private schools, would be shutting down, due to increased Centers for Disease Control guidelines on limiting public gatherings due to the coronavirus.
