The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is delivering their State of the Schools speech.

School officials say according to research done by the district, EVSC was the largest Midwest school system to remain open for the entirety of the school year.

Superintendent Dr. David Smith calling that a success a win for the entire community.

Despite the challenges of the past year, EVSC has prioritized four things; ensuring students are safe and fed while learning continues, seniors are in a position to graduate, and staff are supported.

"As we looked back the past 13 months, there were so many challenges, but every challenge was met incredible people coming together saying we can do this, we can find a better way," says Dr. David Smith, superintendent. "I think why I got a little emotional is this is a story about people, relationships, and it's a story about always looking for a better way to educate our kids."

EVSC says they provided nearly 800,000 meals during the closure to students and 700 hot spots were distributed.

Officials say as they move forward into a new school year, the hope is to eventually transition back to a more traditional approach.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
