[05/06/21]   The shooting today at Rigby Middle School is something we all dread happening in Idaho or anywhere. On behalf of the Idaho State Board of Education, I extend best wishes for a quick and full recovery to the students and the custodian who were injured, and our thoughts are with their families too. I want to thank the school staff, teachers, administrators, and first responders. Their quick actions likely prevented others from being injured, perhaps even saved lives too.
