Arizona Chamber, Foundation and A for Arizona sign onto a joint letter applauding the Arizona State Board for Charter School's quality school expansion efforts.

Dear President Senseman and Board Members,

We applaud the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools for continuing to approve highly performing public school expansion plans throughout Arizona. Your work does not go unseen by the business community, which deeply appreciates your thoughtful expansion of Arizona’s best public charter schools.

Thanks to your commitment to ensuring great schools continue to grow, more than 1,500 Arizona students will now have access to a high-quality school next fall.

We are also grateful for your continued commitment to expanding excellence specifically in low income communities. These schools are an example of what’s possible for Arizona’s students, and reflect the importance of ensuring parents and families have access to excellent choices in every neighborhood.
