Marion County has issued guidance on how to reopen schools safely during the coronavirus pandemic and the new public health order goes into effect on Aug. 6. Here’s how it will work.


Indianapolis Public Schools students are seeing a disruption in their virtual learning Tuesday morning. Internet issues prompted the district to announce a two-hour delay just after 9 a.m.

Around 8:30 a.m., the district announced on Twitter that its internet and online services are down. IPS has been doing remote learning, primarily through online platforms, since Aug. 17 for its nearly 30,000 students.

Are you an IPS student or parent? Let us know what you’re experiencing this morning.

A district spokesperson did not have more information Tuesday morning but confirmed that at least some students are experiencing a disruption in learning. About 30 minutes later, the district announced it would operate under a two-hour delay for all students while it attempted to resolve the issue.

IPS is one of two school districts in Marion County that is still only offering virtual instruction. Last week, IPS and Washington Township Schools both announced plans to start bringing students back into school buildings next month.
