TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Nearly 14,000 students at Amphitheater schools will be returning to new technology, teachers, classrooms and “green” buses on Aug. 7, thanks to the voter-approved bond project.

Amphi middle schools will see a new engineering and science curriculum called Project Lead the Way, according to an Amphi news release. Students will gain skills in communication, collaboration, critical-thinking and creativity using industry-leading technology to solve problems.

Students at Cross Middle School will have the opportunity to learn at their own pace at home or at school through their new online, blended learning academy. The students will also have in person interaction with a teacher supervising the program.

Five new buses were added to the Amphi Bus Barn, but they all run on propane, which creates a cleaner environment and cuts fuel costs to about half. Ten smaller propane buses will be added in October to transport children with special needs to and from school.

Additionally, the district hired more than 100 teachers and faculty over the summer for the new school year.
