IPS holds meeting Monday evening about potential school closures

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – On Monday evening, Indianapolis Public Schools held another meeting to discuss potential school closures.

Monday’s meeting, at Hawthorne Community Center, was the fourth in a series of meetings intended to get feedback from the community about the possibility of shutting down three ISP high schools for the 2018-2019 school year.

The meetings come after a report from the IPS Facilities Utilization Taskforce, in which it was recommended three high schools be closed in order to improve organizational efficiency in their secondary schools.

It hasn’t been decided which schools will close, but school board members say the input has been important.

The next and final meeting is scheduled for this Thursday at 6 p.m. at Garfield Park.
