PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced Thursday that schools will be able to resume at the start of next school year.

According to the governor, Arizona Superintendent Kathy Hoffman will release guidance for schools on Monday, June 1.

"This document, created by a broad group of education leaders, public health officials, and stakeholders, will provide adaptable, flexible recommendations, considerations, and resources for districts and charters to plan for the upcoming academic year," the Arizona Department of Education said of the guidelines in a statement.

Ducey says the guidance was informed by school leaders and parents across the state.

In addition to students returning to the classroom, Ducey also said organized youth activities can resume. The activities include summer leagues, summer schools and day camps.
