INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, the Marion Superior Court ruled that Indianapolis Public Schools is exempt from the $1 Law.
The IPS Board of School Commissioners released this statement after the ruling:
“We are grateful for the judge’s ruling, reaffirming the district’s ability to make decisions about the reuse of Indianapolis Public Schools facilities. We’re proud that we have already worked with organizations and community members so that, along with a number of possible options, some of these buildings will serve students with mental health needs, deaf students, and adult learners. We continue to strive to not only be a good partner but also be fiscally responsible with the resources that have been entrusted to us by our community. IPS continues to work toward the sustainability of our school district and this outcome supports our ability to keep Rebuilding Stronger.”
