We just received notice that the legislature is proposing a budget that cuts an estimated $3.9 million from the state revenue that we receive on an annual basis. That number may become even higher.
A cut that large will create incredible hardship on schools. We work efficiently and effectively with the money we are given, and if the state decides to cut funding, it will place a greater burden on our schools to overcome the budget shortfalls.
Imagine Schools is proving public schools can do a superb job of educating students if they are smaller, more efficient, and set higher expectations for all students. A cut of this magnitude will greatly impact all our schools and classrooms.
Imagine Schools is proud to partner with you in your child’s education. We also support our legislature for working towards economic sustainability, a measure we also share at Imagine Schools, but this cut goes too far. A cut this size would greatly impact the level of resources we need to continue to make a positive impact on student achievement.
Imagine Schools is the largest network of schools in Arizona with over 8,300 students. Our partnership with our parents is tremendous and now we need your help. Lawmakers are expected to vote very soon on this budget. Click here to send a message to your lawmakers. Click here to send a message to your lawmakers. Please take a moment to send a message.
