Rise & Shine: Governor honors teacher injured in Noblesville school shooting

Good morning,

Keeping with the trend of the weekend (and the past few weeks, frankly) we’ve got some more breaking news:

Superintendent Lewis Ferebee is set to leave Indianapolis Public Schools to take the top district spot in D.C. in January. While most of the folks we talked to weren’t surprised, some said it was a concerning time for the district to lose its leader, even one whose administration has not been without controversy.

Below, we have more details on today’s announcement from D.C., and some lookback on the legacy Ferebee brings with him to our nation’s capital.
