HELLO EVERYONE! The proposed changes to the Indiana HS Diploma continue on with a State Board of Education meeting in mid July. While you've made your voice heard, we now need you to activate your parents, boosters and community through a direct ask to fill out the form and contact the state board.

Please use the link to the letter below as well as the talking points provided and directly ask your community to speak up for a well rounded education! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pxo_71NxZEsjwYVXsm2u6YigMRRuT12Jvq9jFJ2duvo/edit?usp=sharing
