Indianola is blazing trails in online education, and a group of Indianola teachers are among those blazing trails for the district. From left, Ali Sauter, technology integration coach, Kim Grissom, teacher leadership coordinator, Nick Dau, online learning coordinator and Jessica Hazelton, high school instructional coach, are helping create a program offering an online diploma for Indianola students entirely using classes created by local teachers.
