A bright future for all Indianapolis students…
Indy K12 was born April 2016 from a simple idea: There are numerous changes swirling around our schools that it’s hard to receive a straight answer. We thought Indy’s parents, students, neighbors, and educators could start their own dialogue and come up with their own answers to improving public education for students in Indianapolis and across the state of Indiana. Together we can ensure our children have the well-resourced, safe, and effective schools they deserve.
Indy is unique because it serves a diverse population of students across eleven school districts (Indianapolis Public Schools, Beech Grove Schools, Speedway Schools, and nine township districts), a growing charter network, and private schools. Although Indy has one of the most robust systems of school choice in the country, like many urban school districts nationwide, this city has wrestled with troubling issues of inequity – achievement gaps, school segregation, financial shortfalls, and disproportionate discipline of students of color.
We know we need to do much better by our children, but how do we make sense of all the debate about our schools? How do we engage as good citizens to support every child in Indianapolis?
