Arizona Schools Walkout *Update*

Click here to view the guidance letter to Arizona school based clinicians from ASHA president, Elise Davis-McFarland, PhD, CC-SLP

ArSHA has been contacted by members requesting guidance on the potential impact the pending teacher walkout might have on their professional standing with the association. It is our professional and legal obligation to ensure that we maintain compliance with IEP service minutes and IDEA-mandated due dates. Therefore, the decision to participate is at the discretion of the individual member and provision of services should be planned accordingly. ASHA's President, Elise Davis-McFarland, will be providing additional guidance on this issue in the next few days.

When making your individual decision regarding your participation in a walkout please refer to the following:
