Here are the Arizona schools closing when teachers walk out Tuesday

Hundreds of schools remain closed as teachers and support staff participate in the #RedForEd teacher walkout.

Thousands have shown up each day to protest at the Arizona Capitol. 

The state's largest school districts — Mesa, Tucson, Peoria, Gilbert, Deer Valley, Paradise Valley, Dysart, Phoenix Union and Washington Elementary — have announced they will remain closed Tuesday.

The list of schools planning to stay open or close is subject to change. The Arizona Republic will continue to update this list. 

Arizona Educators United organizers have said the duration of the statewide walkout will depend on "the response from the Legislature and educators." 

A number of school districts have stated in their notices to parents that any missed school days may have to be made up at the end of the year because the state requires a set amount of instruction days.

Some schools already have additional days or instructional hours built into their schedule, and so may not have to add days. Others have said they may add instruction hours to remaining school days.
