IPS Parent

All IPS kids can achieve if they are given the right supports, which is why I am asking you to add your name to this petition to IPS leaders. Parents like me submitted a plan for a more just and equitable IPS to district leaders back in March and your signature will help us gather enough support to show the board they need to act now.

I believe:

  • IPS needs to set clear expectations for student attainment in their 2025 strategic plan that address the barriers standing in the way of universal and unbiased student success;
  • The district should grow schools and programs that have dramatically improved results for children of color and traditionally underserved students;
  • All schools within IPS should be funded equitably, including the distribution of public referendum dollars;
  • There should be a clear goal set to increase the number of teachers who reflect the diverse student population;
  • A language justice policy should be established that supports and celebrates parents and children with language differences; and
  • The board should publicly review if the millions of dollars being spent on police in schools would be better used to address the social and emotional health of students.

Sign your name now and stand with IPS parents like me.
