Indiana State Board of Education

The U.S. census determines billions of dollars in federal funding for Indiana – including for schools – and education leaders across the state are on a mission to make sure every Hoosier child gets counted in 2020. 

Two virtual charter schools and the district overseeing them have to pay back millions of dollars in state funding, after the Indiana State Board of Education voted to get money back from the schools at its meeting Wednesday.

Daleville Community Schools reached a deal last month to close the two virtual schools it oversees by next summer. The district said earlier this year the operators of Indiana Virtual Pathways Academy and Indiana Virtual School failed to educate hundreds of enrolled kids.

Four New Members Join The State Board Of Education

Jul 3, 2019

Four new members are joining the State Board of Education this month. 

Three will replace members whose terms came to an end in June, while the other is replacing a member who recently resigned.

More personnel changes are coming to the State Board of Education. As one member sent the governor his letter of resignation this week, and some others come to the end of their terms later this month.

Both the Senate and House have approved their own versions of a virtual education bill, but some worry the proposed new rules for virtual education moving forward don’t do enough.

The school district that authorizes two of the state’s virtual charter schools says hundreds of the enrolled students haven’t earned credits or submitted course work, and is making moves to revoke their charters.
