Indiana school officials will discuss what they see as their greatest accomplishments and what still needs to be addressed in their schools.

An annual organizational meeting from the Monroe County Community School Corporation on Thursday, January 12, addressed the state of the county’s schools.

This week on Noon Edition, we will talk to school officials to see what they think about some of the recent changes to Indiana schools and discuss what still needs to be changed.

Join us Friday at 12 p.m. with your questions for our post office representatives. You can visit this site to be part of our live chat, follow us on Twitter @NoonEdition, or join us on the air by calling in at 812-855-0811 or 1-877-285-WFIU.

    for Ms. Sue Wanzer:

    HR Superintendent Peggy Chambers is on record saying our schools could not
    function without substitute teachers. During a student’s educational career
    from K-12 they will have spent a year with a substitute teacher. In December of
    2011, MCCSC School Board President Jim Muehling announced via “preemptive
    comment” that the Board was looking into the compensation rates of not only
    substitute teachers, but all MCCSC support staff. Considering the fact that the
    pay rate for substitute teachers ($60/day) has remained flat for the past
    decade while all support staff has enjoyed incremental pay increases each year,
    what priority will the Board give to sub teachers to achieve a level of
    professional compensation that approaches the national average of $105/day?
