ISTA Statement on Suspension of School Year Due to COVID-19

Statement from ISTA President Keith Gambill responding to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s announcement that schools will remain closed through this school year.

“Since March, educators, students and families have adopted new technologies and adapted to learning at home. Gov. Holcomb’s decision to close public schools through this school year is prudent and will keep everyone safer. ISTA will continue to support educators by offering guidance and resources. We urge educators and families to follow precautionary social distancing so we can look to a new school year with hope that school will be in session.”
