Board Announcement

Arizona Rural Schools Association is pleased to announce our two newest executive board members.

Mr. Dan Streeter, superintendent of Humboldt Unified School District in Prescott Valley, has agreed to be our new central area representative. Mr. Mike Chouteau, CEO of 1GPA, will become the executive board member for scholarships and endowments.

These gentlemen will make an already strong executive board even stronger!

ARSA Funding Update

As superintendents of rural schools in 106 districts across Arizona, we at the Arizona Rural Schools Association are in support of the effort that Governor Doug Ducey has undertaken to develop a valuable proposal that moves our state in the right direction on the issue of school funding. Rural schools in Arizona have a broad spectrum of needs and the proposal to increase teacher funding by 20% over three years and restore soft capital funding over five years enables local school leaders to more effectively address the challenges facing our schools. You can read all of our thoughts on this matter by viewing our full update.

Teacher of the Year Nominations

Each year, ARSA presents two prestigious awards to outstanding Arizona educators: the County Teachers of the Year Awards and the Arizona Teacher of the Year award. Award winners receive plaques acknowledging their achievements and recognition. The teachers we recognize have worked hard for our community, and we are proud to honor them!
