Company Name 

This summer, Glenn Hamer, the President and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will be touring 9 cities to meet with local business leaders and chambers in an effort to understand local business needs and interests across our great state on the annual Arizona Chamber State Roadshow. He will be joined this year by Lisa Graham Keegan, former State Superintendent of Public Instruction and current Executive Director of A for Arizona,  a project with the Chamber Foundation and Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce working to rapidly grow and replicate ‘A’ schools serving significant low-income student populations. They are interested in meeting with local business and school leaders to share about A for Arizona, the possibility of excellent low-income school initiatives in your region, and to hear your policy questions and concerns.

 

About A for Arizona

The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce launched “A for Arizona,” a multi-pronged campaign with the goal of ensuring every K-12 student in Arizona has access to a grade “A”-level school. The initiative will be headed by former Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction and nationally renowned education expert Lisa Graham Keegan.


The initiative is a concerted effort by the state’s business community to make lasting reforms that will positively and profoundly change the education landscape in Arizona by implementing policies that recognize excellence.

A for Arizona will work to expand the number of students educated in "A" quality public schools (district, charter, and magnet) by at least 10% per year, beginning in the 2016-17 school year. A for Arizona will focus efforts on expanding low-income "A" schools serving over 60% Free and Reduced Lunch student populations.
