As all of you are aware, the ongoing impact and implications of COVID-19 on Indiana’s public school system remain uncertain at this point in time. As we continue to communicate with and listen to legislators across local, state and federal levels, we are committed to serving as a guiding resource and communications channel for public school superintendents throughout the state of Indiana.
As you continue to offer communication and updated information to families, educators and school staff members while the situation develops, we ask that you remain calm and maintain lines of communication with your fellow superintendents. By sharing measures used to deal with the spread of this virus across the state, and maintaining connections and continuity, we can collectively find the best ways to address the situation as it continues to develop into the future.
We are actively monitoring CDC and government guidance, and will communicate ongoing valuable information to members looking for sharable resources.
