Creating Incredible Public Schools
When we released our report, we hoped it would spark significant conversations about the need for change within IPS and how to create the best district possible. That's exactly what it has done.
Since its December release, there have been more than 75 articles, blog posts, editorials, and letters to the editor on our Opportunity Schools report in outlets ranging from The Indianapolis Star to Education Week. The report also has generated interest among leaders in other cities, including Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, who issued a district-reform report in February that cited our plan and offered similar prescriptions. And it has created a robust dialogue among a variety of groups and individuals about the best way forward for IPS.
We know this dialogue will continue, and we hope you will take part. If you are interested in being part of the conversation about transforming IPS, you can:
- Attend a meeting to learn more about our report and other community ideas for improving K-12 education.
- Read the report and discuss it with friends, neighbors and colleagues (Creating Opportunity Schools full report).
- Share your thoughts with us about the report and other ideas for improving our city's schools.
Together, we can make IPS a network of Incredible Public Schools.
