Indiana Charter School Board (ICSB) Vote Response

Please see our district statement regarding today’s vote by the Indiana Charter School Board in response to ReThink Forward’s application for charters for Emma Donnan Middle School and Manual and Howe High Schools.

Next Step in Emma Donnan Process Set for Friday, Dec. 13

The Indiana State Board of Education (SBOE) voted 8–1 Wednesday, Dec. 4, to approve a resolution directing Charter Schools USA (CSUSA) to pursue a charter to continue operating Emma Donnan. This was another landmark in the events surrounding the status of three former IPS schools scheduled to exit state takeover in June 2020.
