IPS considers year-round schedule

October 1, 2010

The state’s largest school district is thinking about a big change to the school calendar. Indianapolis Public Schools is considering a plan that combines a traditional school year with a year-round schedule—a hybrid known as a balanced calendar. Students would go to school for about nine weeks and then have three weeks off. IPS will hold a series of public meetings in October, with the first one at Arlington High School on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m.
