ISTA Statement in Support of Mandating Masks in Schools and Further State Guidance

Statement from ISTA President Keith Gambill responding to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s decision to mandate the wearing of masks for grades three and up, as well as providing clearer guidance for schools.

“We appreciate Gov. Holcomb meeting with and listening to ISTA members’ concerns for the health and safety of Hoosier students and educators. Two of ISTA’s top priorities were met today – a statewide mask mandate and more detailed guidance on reopening schools. We will continue to advocate for doing what’s best for educators and the students they serve to ensure a safe learning and working environment.”
