Textbook and Other Educational Benefits Assistance

  • Breakfast and lunch are served each school day at no charge to all IPS students under the USDA’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  The CEP Provision pertains only to meals and does not extend to other educational benefits.  Some examples of other educational benefits may include: test/exam fee reduction or waiver; tutoring; the After School Snack Program; and curricular material (textbook) assistance.  All IPS students must pay curricular material (textbook) rental fees unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for free curricular material (textbook rental) assistance for the 2018-2019 school year.

Only current year 2018-2019 applications can be accepted. One application per household is required.  See the Application and Parent/Instruction letter for information on how to apply. You will be notified IN WRITING when your application is approved or denied.  If you do not receive notification within ten days, call 317.226.4951.  Applications are confidential, and  information provided will not be shared with others.
