On March 19th, the IPS Board of Commissioners voted 6-1 in favor of approving Adelante Schools as the official operator of Emma Donnan Elementary and Middle School beginning in the 2020-2021 school year. While we wish we could begin meeting with all of our Emma families immediately, we are practicing recommended guidelines for social distancing and are in the process of creating alternate ways of engagement. We will be eager to meet and get to know more of you in-person as soon as we can!
Over the last few months, we have been deeply committed to engaging the southside in identifying what they want in an excellent school. We have met many people in this community who care deeply about the success of Emma Donnan and have been inspired by their unwavering passion and love for southside children and families. To all that we have met: thank you for your insight, questions, and commitment. We are humbled to be joining such a vibrant community.
