Political Notebook


Where in the world is the State Board of Education?

If you are a Hoosier interested in tracking education policy, you have a new website to follow.

After decades of having all information related to the State Board of Education on the Indiana Department of Education site, the board's agendas, meeting times and more have migrated.

Its new home is on the overall Indianagovernment website at www.in.gov/sboe.

The Center for Education and Career Innovation – created administratively by Gov. Mike Pence – is now staffing the board and has taken over responsibility for its online presence.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz still chairs the board and heads the Department of Education.
