Yesterday, Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced the specific times and locations of the Next Level Teacher Compensation Commission input sessions. The governor announced the dates of the input sessions earlier this month as part of his effort to make teacher pay competitive with surrounding states.

The commission and advisory council, which includes education and business leaders, have been tasked with providing recommendations for how to achieve competitive compensation for teachers. The commission will deliver the recommendations to the governor and the General Assembly prior to the 2021 legislative session.

During the input sessions, members of the commission and advisory council will seek ideas and solutions, and listen to issues and concerns.

The Northern Indiana meeting will take place Tuesday, August 27 at 7 p.m. ET in the Concord Jr. High Cafeteria located at 59397 Co. Rd. 11 in Elkhart.
