Public Education
Education has a high priority in the Tucson area.  The public school system provides general and college-preparatory courses.  Pima Community College, serving all county residents, is two-year college with five campuses.  University of Arizona offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees in a wide field of study.  There are vocational and technical schools along with many private and parochial schools that provide curricula for elementary through high school students.
To determine a child’s school district, call, write or visit the website: Pima County School Superintendent, 130 W. Congress Street, Tucson AZ 85701-1317; 520-740-8451.  Enrolling in any of the local school districts is quite simple and can generally be accomplished in less than half an hour.  You will need to bring your child’ birth certificate and immunization record.  Arizona Laws (ARS 15-803, 36-629) require that every pupil must have a signed immunization record for school attendance before enrollment or continuing in school attendance.  No disease history is acceptable without a serological confirmation by a physician.  See the school nurse with any questions.  Children in Arizona must be immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus (DPT) as well as measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and polio.  Some districts require a hepatitis A and/or B series.
