A bill designed to reshape the powers of the Indiana Department of Education and State Board of Education is moving forward. The House Education Committee approved the measure this morning. Provisions in the legislation include allowing the board to appoint its own executive director, a position currently held by Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz. Under the bill, state board records would be kept by the board instead of the superintendent of public instruction.

House Bill 1486 would also recognize the board as a state educational authority and allows it to establish academic standards in areas it finds appropriate.
