Indianapolis Public Schools is preparing for big changes and they are asking for input from stakeholders. IPS has already begun having meetings and town-halls around new plans for the 2017 – 2018 school year. They will make suggestions to the Board of School Commissioners for the next school year.

Some of the things that are going to be up for debate:

  • The new high school model
  • Career centered programs
  • School occupancy and enrollment issues

Superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools, Dr. Lewis D. Ferebee, has already started preparing people for potential school closings in order to better utilize resources.

If you have an opinion, or want to make your voice heard, read more here.
