The District Vision:

Every student, every day, preparing for tomorrow.

Parents and Families,

Tax Credit season is upon us!  The Education Tax Credit allows folks to donate up to $200 for a single filer ($400 for married couples filing jointly) to Clarkdale-Jerome School District and get a dollar for dollar credit on your AZ State taxes.  Bottom line is that if you contribute up to $400 to the school and owe that much in state taxes then your tax liability is gone.  This is a dollar for dollar credit towards what you might owe the state of Arizona.  A “win-win” for both you and the school district!!

As we wind down the first semester of the school year, we want to thank all of our parents, community members and partners for their support of our school district.  Our partnerships and collaboration help to make our school the best in the Verde Valley.

On behalf of everyone in the district, we wish you a happy holiday and we hope 2019 brings you joy and happiness.


Danny Brown, Superintendent
