What's new this year at South Bend Community Schools
SOUTH BEND, Ind., -- South Bend Community School Corporation opened its doors to students for the 2022-2023 academic year. The last two years, students have been through some challenges. Now, new CDC recommendations and Covid-19 vaccines for children have allowed restrictions to ease in schools. This school year looks different in the district.
While South Bend Empowerment Zone Chief, Dr. Davion Lewis says the schools are prepared and staffed for the first day of school, the district is facing some staffing issues right now with various paid and volunteer positions that need to be filled. Open positions can be found here.
Lewis and the new principal of Coquillard Elementary, Laura Krieger discuss these challenges and changes for the upcoming school year, new COVID protocols, academic goals, family and community partnerships, improved security measures and facility improvements and more.
