Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana State Board of Education today announced the scheduling of a public meeting at Theodore Roosevelt College and Career Academy in Gary, Indiana. State law requires the Board to hold a public hearing at a school that has been operated as a turnaround academy for five consecutive years in order to hear from community and school leaders about ideas to help students improve their educational performance.

“Roosevelt College and Career Academy is showing great progress,” said Eddie Melton, State Board of Education Member representing Indiana’s 1st Congressional District. “ This meeting will provide educators, parents, students, EdisonLearning, Gary schools and the community the opportunity to collaborate and discuss strategies for the continued improvement of students attending Roosevelt College and Career Academy.”

According to state law, the Board can select among many options concerning future operation of Roosevelt College and Career Academy. Some of the options include: continue work with EdisonLearning under a new or extended contract to operate the school, assign a new operator for the school, or return the school to Gary Community School Corporation as an innovation network school with a third-party operator.

The public meeting is designed for members of the State Board of Education to listen to voices in the community. The meeting will include presentations from the Department of Education, EdisonLearning and the Gary Community School Corporation, followed by general public comment. No decision will be made at the meeting.
