Letter from Our Head of Schools

Dear Hoosier and Insight Families, 

It is my pleasure to officially introduce myself to you all and our community. I am so thankful for the opportunity afforded to me as the Head of Schools for the Hoosier Academies Network of Schools. I am truly excited to work with the Hoosier Board, K12, and Ball State University to ensure that all of our scholars earn a high-quality education. I am a firm believer that placing scholars at the center of all that we do coupled with accountability, high expectations, support, and praise will yield desired outcomes and growth by all stakeholders. I am most excited to hear from all stakeholders: scholars, parents, and community partners. I want to learn of the awesome things that are happening each day in our schools and how we can continue to become even stronger partners in learning.

The Hoosier Academies Network of Schools has earned a reputation for personalizing the learning for each scholar, and the unlimited opportunities accessible beyond the classroom are exceptional, as they provide social emotional learning experiences for scholars at all levels. As an educator for 16 years, I unstintingly value the programs and services that currently exist, and I am fully committed to building upon this foundation to safeguard that both current and future scholars have opportunities to discover their interests and find their true desires.

In addition to the robust K12 curriculum, it was the strong sense of community that drew me here. I observed this sense of pride as I matriculated through the interview process and have experienced it firsthand over the past month, as I have met with each staff member. The parents, scholars and community partners that I have met have been extremely welcoming. Please understand and trust that it is my full intent to make every effort to cultivate this practice to ensure the continued growth of our students, schools and community. 

While serving as your Head of School, I plan to be available to all stakeholders and maintain an open line of communication. I welcome any
questions, comments or concerns that you may have about our schools and can be reached directly at 317-547-1400 or jasilver@k12.com.

It is an exciting time for the Hoosier Academies Network of Schools, and I’m truly enthusiastic about the year ahead.
