IMPORTANT UPDATE The 2020 AZTransfer Summit is canceled. On March 15, 2020 the CDC recommended the cancellation of events with 50 or more people as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At the same time, Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman also announced the closure of Arizona K-12 schools through March 27. In light of these developments, we have decided to cancel the 2020 AZTransfer Summit.
As this situation continues to unfold, we will provide you with updates and next steps as information becomes available.
