Education

A Message from Congressman Schweikert:

We hope everyone and their family is continuing to stay healthy and well. As a parent, I understand the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on parents with children staying home from school each day. It is critical that we work together to find solutions that keep children, educators, and key stakeholders safe while providing students with the education they deserve. Our office has collected resources from all of our school districts in AZ-06 to keep you updated on information.
