The Indianapolis Public Schools Board of School Commissioners will hold a meeting Tuesday, March 31, to discuss the latest on the district’s COVID-19 response and to review the actions taken during the Board’s March Action Session.
Due to the current public health crisis, and to reduce the risk of community transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Board will conduct the meeting electronically via videoconference pursuant to Governor Eric Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-09 and corresponding guidance from the Indiana Public Access Counselor.
The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. and can be viewed via livestream on the district’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/IPSSchools/. A Facebook account is not required to view the livestream.
Reviewing the actions taken by the Board during its March Action Session – which was closed to the public because of COVID-19 but livestreamed — will give the public another chance to hear the decisions made by the Board. Those decisions included approving several Innovation Restart Schools for the district.
“While we think the Board’s accommodations at the Board Action Session on March 19 were aligned to the letter and spirit of the modified requirements of Indiana’s public access laws at the time, in order to proactively address any concerns, we plan to review and reaffirm our actions at an Action Review Session on March 31,” said President Michael O’Connor, IPS Board of School Commissioners.
