The NWI Study Council and the
Northwest Indiana Education Service Center
is pleased to provide the showing:
Rise Above the Mark.

It's time to make a difference in public education. Rise Above the Mark is a documentary narrated by Peter Coyote that brings to light the heartbreaking realities of public education.

It's a story of what happens when public education enters the classroom.

Public schools are boxed in by current corporate reforms. Rules and regulations restrict vision, depreciate funding, demoralize teachers, and turn students into test-taking machines, robbing them of time to foster creativity.

Rise Above the Mark focuses on Indiana's struggles with public school reform-the same types of struggles experienced in schools throughout the United States.

Experts Diane Ravtich, Linda Darling-Hammond, Pasi Sahlberg and others discuss how America can make positive changes to provide an exceptional public school system for all children.

Return trust, decision-making, and responsibility to public schools.

DATE: April 30, 2014
COST:  No Charge.

After careful consideration of the need to make up days missed due to inclement weather this winter, the corporation has decided to make up the most recent day lost on the Monday after Easter, April 21st.

The general philosophy of this administration is to avoid making up days on previously scheduled days off for fear of poor student attendance.

However, after hearing from numerous stakeholders regarding planned vacations and other conflicts if we were to make up a day on June 2nd, we believe we will serve more of our students and families by having school on April 21st.

This change will enable us to complete the student school year on Friday May 30th

Thank you.
Larry Veracco, Superintendent
