Attention IPS Families and Staff

In support of IPS teachers planning to attend the Red for Ed Action Day on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Indiana Statehouse, the district has cancelled classes and declared it a Professional Development (PD) Day. The previously scheduled teacher Professional Development Day on April 17, 2020, will now be a regular school day with student attendance.

Families: Child care options and locations for free lunch service on Nov. 19 are listed below; check for updates on our website at If you have additional questions, please follow up with your student’s principal.

Innovation school parents should check with their child’s school to find out if the school will be open or closed on Nov. 19.

teamIPS: If teachers or other staff members participate in the legislative action day, they will not need to request a personal day as their participation will be classified as professional development. If teachers or other staff members do not participate in the legislative action day, they should report to their schools to complete duties as assigned by building leadership.

All non-teaching staff with questions regarding their report-to-work obligations should contact their supervisor or review the Report-To-Work Obligation Procedures.
