Back to School

Indianapolis Public Schools will begin the 2020–21 school year on Aug. 17 with full-time remote learning for all students. The decision to begin the school year in this fashion was made with the safety of both students and staff in mind.

Moving to a fully remote academic model to begin the year means that in-person learning for the district is delayed until at least Oct. 2, which will allow more time for the number of COVID-19 cases in Marion County to stabilize and decrease to a less dangerous level. Continued consultation with the Marion County Public Health Department will occur throughout the district’s school year planning.

The Back to School page is designed to provide answers to questions about the 2020–21 school year for families, staff and the community. The page will be updated regularly.
