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.
Even though students won’t be in physical classrooms, principals, teachers and all school-based staff are excited and ready to work with students within the home-based models. As always, parents/guardians are key players in motivating and encouraging students to complete their assigned coursework in a timely manner. Together, we can keep our students on track toward graduation and a bright future.
Our primary goal is to provide continuity of education for our K–8 students via a paper/pencil packet learning pathway. Below are activities that engage students in learning and play without overwhelming families.
High School Students (Grades 9–12)
The Home Learning Plan utilizes an e-learning platform that allows high school 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 has the opportunity to stay on track to graduate by completing their current coursework to earn credits toward graduation.

Social and Emotional Lessons (SEL) for Grades K-12
We know this is a stressful time for students and families, and IPS is here to support you, not just academically, but socially and emotionally.
The district’s SEL team has compiled weekly videos lessons and daily activities to help children and teens within each grade level. Each week, students can watch the lesson, practice skills, and include the entire family in activities. There are also tips and tasks for students and families throughout the day to help reduce stress and anxiety.
Just like our K-12 students, preschoolers need to stay active and keep learning while at home. The IPS Early Learning team has developed guidance for parents and families in daily home learning activities below. Using what can be found in most homes, parents can engage their child throughout the week. From ABC hunts to sorting/counting to learning how to help with home tasks and more – little ones will have fun while learning the basics to prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.
