In June 2021, the IPS Board of School Commissioners formally adopted the Board Goals found below.  The goals are specifically aligned to the district’s Strategic Plan 2025 and reflect the priorities and values of the Board.  Many of the goals, while aspirational in nature, demonstrate the Board’s commitment to eliminating the achievement gap between students of color and their white peers, ensuring that every student within IPS boundaries has a high-quality school to call home in which they feel valued and welcomed.  The Board will receive updates on a continual basis throughout the year on progress toward goal completion.

By 2025, theIPS Board of School Commissioners will work to meet the following goals:
