We have received clarification of Arizona revised state statute 15-901. This says that the first 10% of absences, 18, days, are excused if they fall under one of the excused categories. The change to the law states that after the 10%, 18 days, any absence for any reason after that is considered unexcused. For every 5 days after the 18th absence, paperwork will be filed turning your child's name into probation in accordance with truancy policies.
When your child is absent you must call in with 48 hours for it to be excused. You will no longer be able to in a week after your child has been gone to excuse the absence. If it is not called in within 48 hours of the absence, we will not go back and change an unexcused to an excused. All of this is specifically stated in the state law.


ALL parents/guardians of Safford Unified School District students there are changes to the Transportation Policies that will be put into effect at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.

In order for your child to ride a bus to/from school, you must come into the Transportation Office with your child, view a video, and sign all necessary paperwork.

The Transportation Office
1185 S. 14th Ave.

This new Transportation Policy is in place to help educate everyone on the importance of safety on school buses. At Safford Unified Schools, we are striving to create a safe, healthy environment for everyone.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Transportation Office at (928) 348-7091 or (928) 348-7080.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Phillip Nelson
Director of Transportation


Arizona tax law allows married couples filing jointly to take up to $400 in tax credit or $200 for singles if they donate to extracurricular activities. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers, even if they donít have children in school. Contributions are donated directly to the school, not to the state or even to the district. Though contributions to public schools have always been tax deductible, a tax credit is subtracted from the amount of taxes you owe. A tax credit is a full refund of your money. You can choose what school/teacher or †an extracurricular program you would like it to go to. Teachers use this money to pay for class field trips.
