Our Office

The Pima County School Superintendent’s Office stands in solidarity against racism and discrimination. We value diversity and promote equity through our educational programs and community partnerships. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment of kindness and respect toward all. Let us be One Pima County.


Our office remains open for business from 8am-5pm daily to fully meet all constituent and school district needs. Visitors entering the office are required to: Wear a mask at all times, undergo a temperature check, and maintain a distance of 6 feet.

We are continually monitoring the situation and building the foundation for when it is safe enough for our schools and educators to engage with us again. We thank you for your support during this challenging time.
