A new accommodation school and district will give youth who’ve dropped out of high school another chance at earning a diploma.

If approved, the school will be categorized as its own district within the county with individuals age 16-21 who’ve been out of school for 30 days or more attending courses online with district curriculum partner Grad Solutions.

“They have to complete one class at a time, they get 30 days to complete that,” said Cochise County Superintendent Jacqui Clay.

Outreach Coordinator Ben Reyna said the need to create an additional accommodation school spurred from recent data released from Expect More Arizona, which shows that 14% of youth age 16-24 in Cochise County are not enrolled in any school or employed. The goal is to have this decline to 7% or less.

“We’re hoping to fill the gap,” said Reyna. “(Students) needed an option that’s from and centered in Cochise County that knew what their specific challenges were."

Are you planning on donating to a local nonprofit in your area this year?

Arizona Gives Day, an annual online fundraising event on April 6, provides the opportunity for Arizona nonprofits to promote their causes and gain additional donations, especially with the financial strain of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“2020 was a nightmare for most nonprofit organizations, they are so dependent on events and fundraisers and that couldn’t happen,” said Rebecca Dailous. “They are in dire need of support and funds. I feel that this year is more important than ever.”

Dailous, who co-hosts Cherry Creek Media’s KWCD country radio show with Val Davidson in Sierra Vista, said the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on local nonprofits. Representatives from nonprofits across Cochise County have also spoken up about the significance of Arizona Gives Day and the financial strain of the pandemic. More information below.
