Parents support Aleesia Johnson as the next IPS superintendent

After a thorough process to gather input from the community, Stand for Children and its parent members are pleased to support Aleesia Johnson as the district’s next leader.

Stand Indiana launched a public survey in January on the superintendent search. The feedback we received was clear: parents, taxpayers, teachers and other stakeholders want the next IPS superintendent to have a deep understanding of the district, teaching experience focused on children similar to students in IPS, and a strong connection to the Indianapolis community overall.

These themes certainly fit with Aleesia Johnson’s background. But then several of our parent members and leaders sat down with Ms. Johnson to ask her tough questions about her vision for IPS. The results of that conversation left many of our parents thoroughly impressed with Aleesia’s grasp of the challenges, her love for educating children and her willingness to listen to parents and take input from the community.
