  • The Indianapolis Public Schools Board of School Commissioners met in executive session on Wednesday night to discuss the pending resignation of Superintendent Dr. Lewis D. Ferebee, who was recently announced as the next chancellor of D.C. Public Schools.

    A public meeting was held at 2 p.m. Friday, December 7, at the John Morton-Finney Center for Educational Services, 120 E. Walnut St., for the Board to take immediate action regarding Dr. Ferebee’s departure and to address short-term leadership for the district following his absence. Aleesia Johnson, IPS Deputy Superintendent for Academics, will serve as Indianapolis Public Schools' interim superintendent.

    While the Board is committed to ensuring a smooth transition and continuity of services to students and families, there will not be a vote on a permanent replacement or defined superintendent search process at this time.
