"Equity for all students to achieve their full potential." This is the guiding vision of the Arizona Department of Education — the state agency tasked with overseeing Arizona's K-12 public education system. Their department, led by a publicly elected Superintendent of Public Instruction, is comprised of more than 600 staff across four state offices working to serve Arizona's students, families, educators, and school communities.

Participants will learn:
  • Update on Arizona schools
  • Arizona Department of Education efforts to support schools and educators
  • Legislative priorities for the upcoming session

Kathy Hoffman's Bio:
Superintendent Kathy Hoffman has spent her entire career working in public education, first as a pre-school teacher and then as a speech therapist in Arizona’s public schools. She began her career in the Vail School District in Southern Arizona before joining the Peoria Unified School District. As State Superintendent, she oversees all of Arizona’s public schools and manages a department of approximately 600 education professionals that work across the state.

Superintendent Hoffman’s vision for the role of Superintendent and the Arizona Department of Education is informed by her experience as an educator and advocate for students with disabilities. She believes all students deserve equal access to a high-quality public education, and that only through committed investment and inclusive policies can Arizona bring its public schools to the top of our nation’s school system. Like her colleagues in the classroom, Superintendent Hoffman holds the adamant belief that Arizona’s future starts in our schools.
