About the Superintendent

The Advisory Board holds its scheduled meetings once every three months at 6:00 p.m., the second Tuesday of the month at the Gary Area Career Center, 35th & King Drive, Gary, Indiana.

The Board encourages suggestions and comments on how educational excellence can be achieved. One of the best ways to stay informed and voice opinions is through attendance at the Advisory Board meetings.

The Board welcomes the participation of interested organizations and individuals.
