Pendergast Federation of School Employees (AFT) members have been rallying the teachers, staff, community, and district for a Day of Action at the Arizoan State Capitol. They have begun a district-wide petition with their local PTAs to petition the district's school board for support in closing the entire district down for one day. AFT-AZ supports the demands of the teachers, staff and community members who are willing to go down to the state Capitol to take a stand and express their frustrations for the lack of school funding! We encourage the citizens of Arizona to join PFSE and the AFT-AZ
