IPS School Board Candidates File To Challenge Incumbents, Seek Open Seat In November Election
Three incumbents and eight other candidates filed to seek election to the Indianapolis Public Schools’ Board of School Commissioners in the Nov. 3 election, according to Marion County Election Board.
The winning candidates will face a slate of challenges next year, as they oversee the state’s largest school district. Those include the pandemic’s fiscal impact and the uncertainties it brings to academics and enrollment. There’s also the ongoing evaluation of the district’s physical space, still expected to lead to proposed school closings and consolidations.
