Most A-Rated IPS Schools Are Independent Of District Policies

Three years ago School 103 on the Far Eastside was struggling, more than most city schools. Few students were learning at grade level and the state would soon consider intervention.

In response, Indianapolis Public Schools Board used a new law that allows struggling schools to contract with a charter school company and run independently of district policies.  The board has ultimate oversight of the schools.
