Thank you and congratulations to New Schools For Phoenix and its four deserving public school grant recipients–Arizona Autism Charter Schools, Synergy Public School, Victory Collegiate Academy, and Vista College Preparatory Charter School.

New Schools For Phoenix recently announced $1 million in awards to these four schools that are making futures bright for Arizona kids. We love to see our partners advancing the great work happening in classrooms where teachers and principals are equipping Arizona students with the skills they need to be successful in life. Expanding this type of learning and making it available to more Arizona kids is exactly what we want to see happen all across Arizona.

New Schools For Phoenix recognizes what we in the business community also see—that a great education leads to positive outcomes for both the individual student and for our state. If every Arizona student is in an excellent classroom gaining the skills they need to become a strong leader in their community, we all win! That’s why we are proud to support partners like New Schools For Phoenix, which aims to support 25 excellent public schools by 2020.

Thank you New Schools For Phoenix and congratulations to these four outstanding grant awardees. It’s a great day when we add more chairs to excellent Arizona classrooms!
