Gov. Holcomb "Convinced" Students Can Return to Class This Fall, Final Decisions Weeks Away


STATEWIDE -- Indiana governor Eric Holcomb says he is convinced schools in Indiana will be able to reopen safely this fall, however, he cautions a final decision about HOW kids will return to class is still “a couple of weeks off.”

The governor says he is in constant conversation with the Department of Education, but says no one has made a decision about what school will look like for the fall semester.

In April, Holcomb ordered all Indiana K-12 schools, both public and private, to cancel in-person instruction and move to remote learning for the remainder of the academic school year.

Dubois County schools have formed a task force to look at how to safely reopen this fall.  Local officials say they are waiting to receive additional guidance from the state on how they should proceed.
