INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – As Indianapolis Public Schools moves to a new model in the 2018-19 school year, the district says their transportation plan for elementary, middle and high schools could change.

They are hosting a series of community meetings to offer students, families and the community the opportunity to learn more and share feedback.

Topics of discussion will include possible new start times for elementary, middle and high schools, walking distance and location of high school bus stops and the potential impact the changes could have on afterschool activities.

The public can attend one of four meetings Monday, Feb. 26 through Thursday, March 1:

  • Monday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. – New Wineskin Ministries – 4501 38th St.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. – St. Paul’s Episcopal Church – 6050 N. Meridian St.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. – Community Alliance Far Eastside – 8902 E. 38th St.
