Mask Update 7-28-2021
New legislation in Arizona (A.R.S. 15-342.05) prohibits requiring a face covering to participate in in-person instruction. To comply with this statute, AAEC will not require masks on campus going forward. At this point, masks are optional for students, faculty, and visitors.
A. Notwithstanding any other law or order, a county, city, town, school district governing board or charter school governing body may not require the use of face coverings by students or staff during school hours and on school property.
B. A school district or charter school may not require a student or teacher to receive a vaccine for COVID-19 or to wear a face-covering to participate in in-person instruction.
