IPS superintendent speaks at Arlington transition meeting

Local

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – IPS Superintendent Dr. Lewis Ferebee spoke at Arlington high school Wednesday night.

In June the school will once again be part of the Indianapolis Public Schools system.

Dozens of parents, teachers and students came out to learn more about what to expect when that change happens.

Dr. Ferebee talked about how Arlington would transition from charter control back to IPS. He said students would keep their credits, and that they are still working on staffing plans, and how to better use the building space.

He calls this an opportunity to continue to improve education for Arlington students.

That’s all the community members and parents want for students.

One former educator got up during the meeting to say, “We need to stop thinking that it’s always better on the other side and somebody else can come in and do better things than what we can do because we already have that love and that care and that passion.”

The school is currently being run by Tindley Charter Schools.

Transition activities begin this spring.
