State Board of Education approves waivers from EVSC

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Indiana State Board of Education has granted a pair of waivers from the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation.

Earlier this week, 14 News previously reported the school corporation was searching for ways to alleviate the stress facing teachers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of those ways was to request the school year be measured in hours of instruction, instead of days, creating more flexibility in the calendar. The State Board approved that request Wednesday.

It also approved a waiver that allows the EVSC to forego its annual performance report.
