On August 24, 2022, a press conference was held at the Blue and Gold Academies in partnership with the Indiana Department of Education and The Mind Trust. A new opportunity to support students was announced by Dr. Katie Jenner, IN Secretary of Education, called “Indiana Learns,” which will provide funding for tutoring for students in 4th and 5th grades who qualify. MSD of Decatur Township has chosen to match funds to maximize the extended day opportunities in ELA and Math. “In MSD of Decatur Township, we strongly believe that investing resources into increased instructional opportunities for students will equal greater academic achievement,” said Dr. Matt Prusiecki, Superintendent of MSD of Decatur Township. “We are Decatur Proud to partner with the IDOE and The Mind Trust to give our students the strong foundation they need in reading and math, so that they can truly become tomorrow ready. With our district matching grant funds, Decatur students will have the resources necessary in support of their continued learning as an extension to the school day.”
