On Saturday, Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star reported that the Gordons have filed an appeal with the Department of Education.
On Aug. 29, when the initially ruling was upheld, Gordon was given 30 days to file an appeal. If the Department of Education’s review panel does not overturn the ISHAA’s decision this case could end up in trial court.
