Superintendent Ritz visits Concord High School


Indiana Public Schools superintendent Glenda Ritz was in the area Thursday, making a stop by Concord High School. She spoke to a government class about her roll as superintendent.

She says the board is busy reviewing many different topics right now. Currently, they are making revisions to the Common Core standards and also having discussions on the schools evaluation system.

She did say that there has been an impact from the Government Shutdown. "We're no longer having any contact with federal employees regarding anything, so in terms of getting information or talking about grants that are in place, things are just halted."

She says that funds have already been secured at the state level for things like reduced school lunches which is why those services are continuing. "I don't know how long it might go on and what effects might be, there's no projection of that."
