Public Participation in a State Board Meeting
Indiana State Board of Education
Established by the Indiana General Assembly, the State Board of Education oversees K-12 education policymaking in the State of Indiana. The bipartisan board is composed of eleven members, including the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Eight members are appointed by the Governor and must include:
At least six appointees with professional experience in the field of education;
Not more than one appointee from a particular congressional district; and
Not more than five appointees belonging to the same political party.
The remaining two board members are appointed by the Speaker of the Indiana House Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Indiana Senate respectively.
IC 20-32-4-1.5 tasks the State Board with establishing graduation pathways, with consultation from the Commission for Higher Education and the Division of Workforce Development. On July 12, 2017 the State Board created the Graduation Pathways Panel to seek input from stakeholders, and to provide recommendations to the State Board.
