Appellant-employer South Bend Community School Corporation (South Bend) appeals the decision of the Unemployment Insurance Review Board (the Board) awarding unemployment insurance benefits to appellee-claimant Mary A. Swartz. South Bend argues that the Board erroneously determined that the Head Start Consortium of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties (Head Start) is not an educational institution within the meaning of the relevant statute such that Swartz, a teaching assistant for Head Start, is eligible for unemployment insurance during the summer breaks between Head Start’s academic terms.
Conclusion (slip op. at 3): Inasmuch as the legislature intended that Head Start be treated as an educational institution for the purpose of unemployment compensation, the Board’s decision in favor of Swartz was contrary to legislative intent and necessarily unreasonable. The judgment of the Board is reversed.
