School choice takes on new importance during pandemic

Originally published by The Indianapolis Star – January 10, 2021

As COVID-19 cases continued to rise, I enrolled my kids at Indiana Gateway Digital Academy due to the uncertainty of what the following year would look like. In addition to the changes the pandemic created, our family went through a last-minute move.

If there was one constant in my kids’ lives, it’s their school. The academy’s commitment to education makes these abrupt changes in our lives much easier to cope with. From all the technology equipment provided, to the personal support students and parents receive, we’re so relieved to have found an option we trust where our kids can thrive.

School choice is essential for everyone, in all states. With National School Choice Week (Jan. 24-30) approaching, let’s use this time to spread awareness and protect this option for all families to choose what is right for their specific needs.
