Innovation Network Schools
Our Innovation Network Schools have the greatest amount of operational and academic flexibility of all IPS schools, and were created beginning in the 2015-2016 school year following new legislation in 2014.
For additional information about Innovation Schools, please review our 2023-24 Innovation FAQ flyer.
IPS Innovation Schools maintain “Open Door Policies” when it comes to their board meetings. Anyone is invited to attend the meetings, but please check on each school’s website or call the office to confirm there has not been any changes in time or location.
