Indiana Department of Education
Welcome to the Indiana Department of Education!
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of support to Indiana’s schools, students, teachers and parents. The administration will be working with educators, parents, policy makers, business leaders and community leaders to create an education system of equity and high quality that will offer the resources and opportunities necessary for our students to compete and excel in the 21st Century.
We are embarking on a community approach to educating our children. No matter where a child lives in Indiana, they should enter schools that have equal access to resources, as well as the expectation that they will receive a high quality education. The needs of schools will drive the department’s legislative agenda, focus our grant-writing efforts, and determine community partnerships and supports.
Our team has transformed the Department’s website into a portal for users to easily access information about the IDOE, academic issues, performance data, and programs and initiatives. We will also maintain communication via the IDOE’s Facebook page and through your local media outlets. The new website is a leap forward in the IDOE’s efforts to advance transparency at the Department.
We look forward to imagining the possibilities and, together, making them happen.
