With support from the Walton Family Foundation, Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) are well on their way toward building capacity for implementing full, building-level autonomy for every IPS school. The $1,672,000 grant will be distributed over a three-year period, with the first installment of $750,000 expected this school year. The grant is described in the media as funding to help the district lay the groundwork for responsibility.

Indiana’s urban schools are caring places that appreciate the “above and beyond” efforts of their faculty and staff. IPS raffle to recognize Showcase volunteers is one example of that care and appreciation.
