ReimaginEd: Arizona state budget expands student access to new educational options

Originally published on July 9, 2021 by reimaginEd.

A budget adopted last week by lawmakers in Arizona includes two key provisions geared toward expanding access to schools of choice for the state’s K-12 students.

A $10 million allocation will establish transportation innovation grants that school districts, charter schools, and other community groups can use to help students attend a school that formerly may have been unavailable to them due to a lack of transportation options. In addition to the grants, funding can be used to modernize existing transportation systems.

The budget also makes the school district open enrollment system more transparent.
