SCH Frequently Asked Questions

Hammond Schools are struggling financially right now due to several issues that are complex and not well understood. It is a serious concern for every stakeholder – parents, staff, community members, and students. The entire community will be impacted by decisions that must be made regarding the future of our schools and the financial health of the district. There is an abundance of information being shared from various sources, but much is without context or background, and most of it is incorrect.

The current situation is too important to leave to rumor and innuendo found on social media. Our community must have FACTS to make informed decisions about the School City of Hammond, the cornerstone of our community.

We hope this dynamic document will provide background and detail to promote better understanding of where we are, how we got here and what the future holds. In addition, we encourage you to submit questions regarding any aspect of SCH.

Please understand that we have a legal obligation to protect the privacy of employees and students, so those kinds of questions may be redirected, but not receive a response on the FAQ. Also, there may be information that we are not at liberty to disclose at the time, but we are committed to share what we can when we can.
