The Engagement Toolkit equips and empowers Arizona teachers with pertinent education information in order to engage and advocate for themselves, their students, and their profession. This resource is focused on providing timely and relevant information across general topics.
The Engagement Toolkit grew out of feedback from Arizona teachers calling for access to information and resources to better engage and advocate on cornerstone topics in education. In response, the Arizona K12 Center and the Maricopa County School Superintendent’s Office worked together with cross-district teacher teams to research decision-making, funding structures, and storytelling. At the forefront of curating the resources listed below was a focus on gathering essential information in one easy-to-find location that is accessible for teachers to review, understand, and apply in their advocacy work.
