|Senate Committee on Education
Sen. Sylvia Allen-Chair
Sen. Steve Montenegro-Vice Chair
SOSAz‘s mission helps the average citizen (parents & community members) better understand current issues in public education, quickly identifies resources that provide accurate and verifiable information from all perspectives, and encourages and enables their confident voice and voting.
The mission of the Arizona Parent Network is to establish and maintain a strategic, resilient and sustainable statewide system of pipelines and points of parent, community, and professional connections. Our purpose is to change future outcomes regarding sound public education policy in Arizona.
The Request to Speak System (RTS) is a computer program designed for members of the Arizona public to voice their opinions on pieces of legislation. It allows citizens to sign up as “in favor,” “neutral,” or “in opposition” to various bills and leave comments which are viewed by the Committee Chairperson while the bill is passing through committee. The comments can also be viewed by any legislator who logs into the system to view the bill.
