June 2022

Our June update
Welcome to the June edition of our newsletter! This month’s issue features the Arizona Voters’ Agenda, CFA career opportunities, and more! 

Earlier this month, we announced the Arizona Voters’ Agenda, a result of new survey research of Republican, Democratic, and Independent/unaffiliated voters of all ages in Arizona. 

The survey results show the majority of likely Arizona voters across the political spectrum agree on critical issues facing the state, which they want to hear candidates address. Here are a few of our key findings:
  • The top priorities on likely voters’ minds are education, economy, water and environment, election reform, and immigration.
  • Likely voters want positions and solutions from candidates.
  • Voters agree more than disagree not only on the issues but on where solutions can be found.
The Arizona Voters’ Agenda findings provide an opportunity to reframe the election on topics that unite the electorate and move us forward together.

As of today, we have released our findings for Education, the Economy, Water and the Environment. The findings for Election Reform will be released tomorrow and Immigration findings will be out Monday.

Read more on what voters care about and what should be discussed by candidates.

Arizona Personalized Learning Network is Expanding

Offering a New Option for Schools!

What happens when we reorient teaching and learning to put educators and students at the center? Educators and students flourish. 

CFA’s Arizona Personalized Learning Network (APLN) is expanding to provide individual schools with ways to engage in personalized learning, including through the Launch Pathway for school leadership teams, where they can receive support and technical assistance in implementing personalized learning at their schools.  

This significant expansion builds on APLN’s track record of training and supporting school districts and charter networks since 2018. The expansion was made possible thanks to a significant investment CFA received from Governor Doug Ducey utilizing federal COVID-19 relief dollars.
