On Tuesday, November 19th, approximately 10,000 teachers will rally at the State House in Indianapolis, to send a collective voice for educational reform. Across the State, approximately 1/3 of public school corporations will be closed this day due to the massive participation of public school teachers.
Although Adams Central will remain open, we will still support our fellow educators by hosting a Go Red For Ed celebration during the school day. We are asking for all staff and students to wear red on Tuesday, Nov. 19th to support much needed reform to our current education system.
