News In Brief

Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) will hold town hall meetings to finalize the district’s strategic plan. The meetings will be held in each region of the district from Nov. 4 to Nov. 14  to give parents and community members a chance to attend, learn about and discuss the district’s six priorities: student-centered teaching and learning; high-performing team; racial equity mindset; school-centered central services; engaged families, teams and partners; and sustainable finances and operations.

Each town hall begins at 6:30 p.m. Translators and childcare are available.
