There are several ways to stay connected to district and school-based news, through:

School Messenger

Information from the district and individual schools is sent via SchoolMessenger — through calls, emails and text messages. Updating your information in PowerSchool automatically connects you to the call and email service.

Power School

Make sure to update your home address, telephone number and email address through your student’s PowerSchool account. And remember to update this information if and when these items change throughout the school year.

Superintendent Monthly Video Messages

Each month, IPS Superintendent Dr. Aleesia Johnson shares a monthly video to keep families updated on the latest news throughout the district. Links to the video are shared via SchoolMessenger and are also posted on the district’s website.

IPS Social Media & Website

Be sure to like or follow Indianapolis Public Schools via Facebook and Twitter @IPSSchools, and visit the district’s website at myips.org.
