ADE Parental Rights Handbook
In the 2020 Arizona Legislative Session, the Legislature passed Senate Bill (SB) 1061 which the Governor signed on June 5, 2020. SB 1061 established ARS § 15-
249.16 which requires the Arizona Department of Education to establish and post a statutory handbook of parental rights. Additionally, each school district and charter school must prominently post a link to the statutory handbook of parental rights on a publicly accessible portion of their website.
This document contains the required statutes per SB 1061 and fulfills the Department’s role in developing and posting the parental rights handbook pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-249.16. In addition to posting on the Department’s website, this document will be distributed to each public school for posting.
