DOE Choice Update 9-4-2020

Published on September 4th, 2020

From Brad Pendleton:


Good Afternoon,

Yesterday, the Indiana State Board of Education (SBOE) held their September meeting and decided not to move the September 2020 count date from September 18, 2020.

Additionally, the SBOE provided language which will not impact the funding for public school corporations that offer virtual instruction as a result of COVID-19. This language insured that the 50%, 70%, and 90% estimated award amounts per corporation for Choice would not be impacted.

Now that the count date has been set, we will conduct a live WebEx for Tuesday, September 15, 2020. This WebEx will act as the September Regional Meetings that will cover data reporting, payment process, corrective action process, and school visit process, among other items. We will provide additional details as we get closer to the meeting such as time and links.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
