2018 Superintendent Teacher Advisory Team

SUPERINTENDENT TEACHER ADVISORY TEAM

Giving voice to the teachers of Maricopa County.

Superintendent Teacher Advisory Team (STAT)

The Superintendent Teacher Advisory Team (STAT) consists of teachers representing a diverse cross section of Maricopa County public school teachers. Input from STAT helps Superintendent Watson represent teacher voice and speak with practical knowledge about experiences and ideas coming from today's classrooms. STAT meets quarterly for discussion around important topics such as:

  • Educator advocacy strategies
  • School funding priorities
  • Teacher retention strategies
  • Accessibility of instructional resources

Teacher representatives are chosen each school year by an application and interview process. The process is intended to ensure the team includes perspectives and experiences that represent as many teachers as possible.

The next application process will begin February 2019.
