On Friday, March 4, the Metropolitan School District of Pike Township was one of 19 new programs to be recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as part of their Promising Practices in Indiana initiative for our Structured Immersion/Newcomers' Program.
“As I travel around the state, I see educators and administrators implementing promising practices that are having a positive impact on Hoosier students,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “The Promising Practices program recognizes schools and communities that are providing students with the support and care they need to be successful both in and outside the classroom.”
According to the IDOE's website, "Identified programs are student-centered and focus on positively impacting students through innovative programming and activities that provide high-quality learning environments and experiences. In addition to publicly recognizing selected schools, each Promising Practice is shared across the state as an example of best practices that positively affect Hoosier students."
