Continuing the push for IPS to grow what works

Yesterday, advocates delivered a petition to IPS leaders. In total, over 1,000 community members in IPS ZIP codes signed this call for district leaders to develop a specific plan to grow the best schools for Black and Brown students according to state assessment data. And we had a great crowd of parents on hand to deliver the petition at the IPS headquarters to four IPS commissioners who attended the event.

While yesterday’s event was great, it’s the advocacy ahead that will ultimately lead to action by IPS leaders.  That’s why I’m asking you to take two minutes to send an email to IPS board members.  Closing the opportunity gap in Indianapolis Public Schools must be a top priority for education leaders.

There is strength in numbers, and we are truly better when we advocate together.
