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). CEP pertains only to meals and does not extend to textbook assistance and other educational benefits.  All IPS students must pay textbook rental fees, unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for textbook assistance for the current school year.

    Application for Educational Benefits (textbook assistance)

    Parents who wish to apply for textbook assistance and other educational benefits must submit an Application for Educational Benefits each school year.

    Only current year 2017-18 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 226-4951.

    Applications are confidential and the information provided will not be shared with others.

    Applications for Educational Benefits are available at each IPS school, by calling 317.226.4951, or on the IPS website at www.myips.org/menus.
