Rebuilding Stronger is our commitment to ensure there are excellent choices open to every single one of our students, in every school, in every neighborhood. No matter the color of their skin, their zip code, their income level, or what language they speak at home, we want families not only to not have to worry about the school their children will attend, but to get excited about the numerous opportunities available at those schools. Rebuilding Stronger is the roadmap to build on and expand what works — while also tackling some of the biggest challenges we face. With this plan, we can deliver more great schools, more excellent offerings, and more equitable access.
This four phase, yearlong initiative began in September 2021 with IPS Superintendent Dr. Aleesia Johnson’s State of the District speech, followed by Phase 1 of Rebuilding Stronger which included a series of Community Conversations that resulted in the following tangibles:
Commitments to Our Community
A set of commitments aligned to IPS values non-negotiable. English | Spanish
Stakeholder Input Report
A collection of the feedback received from stakeholders, including key themes and insights, details of the desired vision from stakeholders. English | Spanish
Indianapolis Public Schools continues to provide engagement opportunities for its Rebuilding Stronger Initiative to ensure that all IPS stakeholders (parents, families, staff, alumni, community partners and others) are engaged throughout the process and have multiple ways and platforms to share their thoughts, suggestions and overall feedback.
