BUCKEYE, ARIZONA – (September 27, 2017) – To help raise awareness of the Buckeye Elementary School District, Ariz. District 4 State Rep. Dr. Geraldine Peten was invited to visit Marionneaux Elementary School in Buckeye on Tuesday, Sept. 26. As part of the national Take Your Legislator to School (TYLS) program, Rep. Peten met with District and school leadership, as well as teachers and students.
The TYLS is an opportunity to provide Legislators an authentic, positive and realistic classroom and school experience by meeting with teachers and students. In addition, it’s an opportunity for schools to develop relationships with state leadership so that when an education bill is being considered in the future, they might call that teacher or district leader for advice.
The TYLS program was designed in collaboration by Arizona Educational Foundation, Arizona Education Association and the Arizona K-12 Center.
