As Gary schools has now reached a point of financial stability, the state takeover enters a new phase where we seek to leave a firm foundation in place. Our goal is to complete this phase by June 2024, depending on actions taken by the state legislature. As a part of developing a transition plan and establishing expectations for the district manager MGT, the Distressed Unit Appeal Board (DUAB) seeks to understand the priorities of the community.
Please take a few minutes to complete the short survey linked below. All responses are anonymous. Results will be used by DUAB to help develop the next manager contract.
