This document is designed to guide Arizona’s professional educators through the process of reporting allegations of child abuse and professional misconduct to the appropriate authorities. Also contained in this document is vital information regarding state resources available to both traditional public schools and charter schools. This information is presented to ensure that Arizona’s students are provided the safest possible learning environment.
The purpose of the Asthma Guidelines for Schools is to provide information that will ensure that school administrators, school health personnel, teachers and support staff understand how to monitor asthma control in the school setting. This can be accomplished if every student with asthma has a care plan and an emergency plan on file and it is updated annually. Additionally, we hope that these guidelines will help to identify students with poorly controlled asthma, so that parents can be encouraged to follow-up with the student’s primary care physician or other health care provider.
The Strategic Plan comprises an ambitious set of goals and objectives. It is a “living” document that will guide our focus and activities. As such, some objectives and expected results will be subject to change as information and events unfold. Objectives and measures aligned to drive achievement have also been developed in Units, Sections and Divisions throughout the Department.
Our Plan includes ambitious, innovative goals and objectives focused on developing great schools, excellent teachers, and successful students. We believe that implementing this Plan in partnership with education, business and community stakeholders will help us achieve our mission: To serve Arizona’s education community, ensuring every student has access to an excellent education.

In view of the increased prevalence of overweight and obesity in American youths, the Arizona Department of Education’s Health and Nutrition Services has taken the initiative to evaluate the nutritional content of competitive foods and beverages sold on school campuses in Arizona. This study also intends to evaluate the financial implications to schools when replacing foods and beverages found to be less nutritious with healthier choices.
