IPS parents graduate from activism program

Thirty Indianapolis Public Schools parents and community leaders graduated from the not-for-profit Stand for Children’s advocacy program on June 5.

The program, Stand University for Parents, helps parents take an “active role in helping their child’s struggling schools,” according to Stand for Children, an Oregon-based education-advocacy group.

The latest graduates of the six-week program are associated with IPS schools No. 19, 69 and 94.

Since launching in 2014, the program has graduated more than 450 parents, grandparents and community leaders.•
