    Emergency Connectivity Fund

    The Arizona Department of Education has informed district leaders of a new funding source called the Emergency Connectivity Fund. These funds are designed to meet the needs of students, school staff, and library patrons who would otherwise lack access to basic educational opportunities and library services. 

    Please take a moment to view Superintendent Dan Erickson's complete June 21, 2021, letter for more information.

    McKinney-Vento Student Rights Information

    One of the most important goals of Bowie Unified School District is to provide an educational environment that treats all students with dignity and respect. Every homeless student shall have equal access to the same free and appropriate opportunities as students who are not homeless. Please see our McKinney-Vento student rights information for complete details.
