Laveen Seeks Interest in Opening Laveen Online Academy

Over the last year Laveen has found the online learning option to be a popular choice among families. In an effort to continue to meet this need, the Laveen School District plans to open a full online school, Laveen Online Academy, beginning with the 2021-22 school year. To help guide our planning, we are gauging the interest level of families in utilizing the online school, pending its availability.

Visit our Laveen Online Academy page for more details and to complete the interest survey.

Donate to Laveen schools and claim a credit on your 2020 taxes.

You can reduce the amount you owe in taxes by making a donation to Laveen schools through Arizona’s Public School Tax Credit Program. Tax credit contributions may only be used to support character education and fee-based extracurricular activities such as after-school tutoring and clubs, academic enrichment, field trips, fine art programs, and athletics.

For every dollar you donate, the amount you owe on your Arizona taxes will be that much less. This means you can reduce the amount you owe before the deadline or increase the amount of your refund if you have tax liabilities for 2020. If you do not owe taxes, the amount you donate may be carried forward for up to five years to offset future tax liabilities. For example, if a single person owes $300 on their state taxes for 2020 and donates the maximum amount of $200, they will then only owe the state $100.

Couples filing jointly may donate any amount up to $400. Individuals may contribute up to $200.

The deadline to donate and claim a tax credit on your 2018 taxes is May 17, 2021.
