Congressman Schweikert Applauds Arizona 6th District Schools Returning to In Person Learning

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman David Schweikert (AZ-06) released the following statement applauding schools in Arizona’s 6th District that have re-opened for in-person learning.  “I am very pleased to see the majority of schools in my district have returned to in-person learning. This has been months overdue, and I applaud our local school district leadership for working to make this possible. As a father of a 5 year old, I know the difficulties remote learning has placed on children, parents, and teachers over the last year. In-person learning is critical for mental health and educational development. We have seen too many students falling behind, and in some cases, students developing mental and health illnesses from remote learning. I am continuing to fight for in-person learning to resume throughout the rest of the country, and hope more states will soon begin to follow in Arizona’s footsteps.” Background: Following the closure of schools in Arizona, Congressman Schweikert has been an outspoken advocate for schools reopening. After a year of closures, the following school districts in Arizona’s 6th District have resumed in-person learning:
  • Scottsdale Unified School District

  • Paradise Valley Unified School District

  • Cave Creek Unified School District

  • Fountain Hills Unified School District

  • Deer Valley Unified School District

  •                                                                     ###
