Indianapolis Public Schools faces several critical votes Tuesday that will determine its leadership and its financial future.

On Election Day, voters are being asked to weigh in on two tax measures that could raise up to $272 million in additional funding to increase teacher salaries and improve school safety. They will also choose three out of the seven board members who oversee the district.
