EVSC to close Nov. 19 for Red for Ed Action Day

Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation will be closed on November 19, 2019 so that educators can attend the Red for Ed Action Day in Indianapolis.

The EVSC said the day will be made up using the virtual learning option.

“I support our teachers advocating for funding levels that, at a minimum, keep pace with annual inflation rates for each and every public school district,” said Superintendent David Smith. “We did not make the decision to close without a great deal of thought due to the impact this has on our families; however, our current and future students deserve to be taught by teachers who are valued and respected for the tremendous work they do in our classrooms.”
