In 2013, Senator Delph authored SB189, which allows regulatory flexibility for “Performance Qualified Schools.” These schools, which have been rated among the best in the state, are now able to make administrative and calendar adjustments which will best serve their students.
Making college achievable for Hoosiers is important to Mike. In 2012, he co-authored SB182, which makes credit transfers among Indiana’s state universities easier for our Hoosier students. This allows students who must move or transfer to maintain credits for which they’ve already earned and paid for.
Mike is always mindful of the need to keep college costs reasonable for Hoosiers. He is constantly on the watch for tuition increases at our state universities and holds those institutions accountable for their use of taxpayers’ money.
In an effort to give families back more control over their calendars and time together, Mike has sponsored legislation to move the school start date well beyond the first week of August, preferably after Labor Day.
