IPS nixes 2-hour delay for game


IPS students won’t be getting a two-hour Super Bowl reprieve after all. District officials wanted to start the school day
two hours later on Monday to cope with the likelihood bus drivers won’t report to work after staying up late to watch
the game, but State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett said such delays are allowed only in the event of an
emergency. The last time the Colts were in the Super Bowl, so many bus drivers called in sick on the next day, school got
delayed. IPS now plans to open one hour late and extend the school day by thirty minutes.
