2017 Legislative Session

I received the below information from Dr. Richard Frisbie, Purdue University, through the Indiana Association for Public School Superintendents.  If you follow the legislative session at all, you know how hard it is to keep current with the bills and their current status.  This is a good place to start if you are interested in following the bills impacting public schools.  

PTSC Standouts:

From Ms. Welbourne:

Congratulations to our BGHS Choir Students who competed in the State ISSMA Solo & Ensemble Contest on Saturday, February 18 at Perry Meridian High School in Indianapolis.
