Thumbs down: IPS turf wars

The Indianapolis Public Schools Board of School Commissioners voted this week to appeal a May decision by the State Board of Education to restrict funds to the district. The decision would give $13.9 million to two special management teams that will oversee four failing IPS schools beginning in July. IPS Superintendent Eugene G. White said the teams would be getting more than $5 million too much based on per-pupil funding because old numbers were used to calculate the allotment given to the teams for their turnaround efforts. According to White, the Sept. 2011 enrollment numbers being used in the calculation show enrollment at the turnaround schools at 3,810, where as today's enrollment is 2,138. In Indiana, school funding is based on average enrollment on one certain day in Sept.
