UPDATE: HB 2862 was signed by the Governor on April 28, 2021. The bill provides flexibility to schools in meeting statutory instructional time requirements, including a pathway for schools to provide remote instruction without an approved AOI. The Arizona Department of Education has issued guidance, a template and a FAQ for schools interested in using this flexibility.
