In Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's daily press conference on Thursday, it was announced that all K-12 schools within the state will suspend face-to-face in class learning for the remainder of the year, but will be required to do remote learning instead to complete the academic requirements for each school's given curriculum.
Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick delivered the address during the press conference.
McCormick also addressed that school districts will have flexibility in how to deal with this situation like using e-learning, remote learning, etc. Each district will be able to choose its course of action on the local level.
School buildings will remain closed, and districts must submit their plans to the state by April 17th.
McCormick also stated that a minimum number of instructional days will still need to be met by academic years' end and can be met in a few different ways.
McCormick discussed that each school district must me the requirement of at least 160 days through either E-Learning or through some form of instructional to get students to that point.
Seniors will be provided with “flexibility” to earn a diploma. They must graduate with needed credit, but any course they are enrolled in will count towards that. Grades 9-11 will still have to adhere strictly to the established credit system.
