This is an important year for the Indianapolis Public Schools board, as the district welcomes two new board members and its leaders continue to navigate education during a pandemic.

Chalkbeat is launching a text messaging service to keep you updated on important school board decisions every month, so you can stay informed regardless of whether or not you’re able to attend board meetings.

Will declining revenues, because of the recession and falling enrollment, force IPS to make budget reductions? Maybe you would like to know if the district plans to add more innovation schools, which are privately managed schools. Or you might be curious about how schools are approaching mental health in classrooms.

Chalkbeat Indiana wants to make it easier to hold district officials accountable for doing right by their students. We intend to provide information about the district and education in general that’s important to students, parents, teachers, and the community. Our goal is to inform the community, spur debate, and inspire you to take action.

Stay tuned and sign up for our monthly texts below. Let us know if you have any questions about what IPS is doing. Our ears are open.

IPS typically livestreams its board meeting at 6 p.m. on the last Thursday of every month. You can tune into the board meetings here.

To sign up to receive monthly text message updates on IPS board meetings, text SCHOOLS to 317-932-3900 or type your phone number into the box below.
