IPS offers Student Support Network sites — in partnership with local community organizations — to provide both on-site and off-site assistance for families during remote learning days. These partner-run sites offer a safe and structured place for IPS students to attend when families need a supervised environment for their children during remote learning.

Student Support Network sites in IPS buildings will be open to a limited number of students and will offer a variety of services, including:

  • Access to remote learning assistance and training for care providers.
  • Small group classroom supervision for students by the partner.
  • Meals (breakfast and lunch) provided by the IPS Food Service Team.

Sites will adhere to the CDC and local/state COVID-19 guidelines, including social distancing; daily and frequent cleaning, including high-touch surfaces and areas; and frequent handwashing and hand-sanitizing stations. Masks are also required.
