“As I have from the beginning, I will continue to champion a solution to the complex issue of adequately and fully funding schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Department was informed late this morning of the Governor’s proposed ADM count date delay. IDOE staff is in the process of reviewing for its potential financial benefits and consequences. This delay is just that- a delay. Hoosier schools deserve a solution to secure 100 percent funding as districts are bargaining, budgeting, and preparing for the next 18 months.”
