Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) has launched its Home Learning Plan to ensure that your child’s educational opportunities continue uninterrupted during school closures due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Per the State of Indiana, closures will last through the end of this school year. Students will complete the year using the district’s Home Learning Plan and not inside school classrooms.
At IPS, districtwide Home Learning will begin Thursday, April 9, 2020.
For K-8 Students:
Our primary goal is to provide continuity of education for our K–8 students via a paper/pencil packet learning pathway. We are providing activities that engage students in learning and play without overwhelming families. We are also supporting our families, not just academically, but socially and emotionally, as we all work through this together.

For IPS high school students (Grades 9–12):
The Home Learning Plan utilizes an e-learning platform that allows students to access resources and materials, but also get the instruction, feedback, and conversation that are critical for sustained learning. Through this plan, your child will have the opportunity to stay on track to graduate by completing their current coursework to earn credits toward graduation.

Principals, teachers and all school-based staff are excited and ready to work with students in these modalities. As always, parents/guardians are key players in motivating and encouraging students to complete their assigned courses in a timely manner.
Together, we can keep our students on track toward graduation and a bright future.
