Arizona Educators United invites every school in the state to participate in a walk-in. Educators from every district will be gathering outside their schools before contract time to speak to the public about the reasons for this movement, the demands that have been made, and importance of community support.
We need the community to support us at the site level because of the impact any action taken by educators has on our students. If the community is behind us, then they will support more aggressive actions. If the community supports us, they will help provide services to parents should a school close.
We need as many schools to participate as possible, even if the school isn't completely participating.

A walk-in is a demonstration of concern by staff and community members prior to the start of the school day that ends on the first bell when everyone enters the building and school carries on as normal. The purpose is to raise awareness of educational issues and to demonstrate unity among the educational professionals and community while allowing for education to continue.
