An IUPUI student died after being struck by a school bus on campus Monday afternoon. Investigators determined the student was walking across New York Street with the right-of-way when the student was struck by the bus, which was making a left turn from University Boulevard onto New York Street. The student was transported to Eskenazi Hospital, but died from their injuries. Police say the school bus involved in the crash is owned and operated by Durham Transportation, who employed the driver. The bus is contracted to Indianapolis Public Schools.
Indianapolis Public Schools will close three high schools and one middle school. The IPS school board voted Monday night to approve a plan that seeks to fix the district’s low enrollment and financial problems. Under the approved plan, Arlington and Northwest high schools will be converted into middle schools and Broad Ripple High School will be sold. John Marshall Middle School and two administrative buildings will also be sold. Howe and Manual high schools, currently operated by state turnaround partners, will not be operated as high schools upon their return to Indianapolis Public Schools. Arsenal Technical High School, Crispus Attucks High School, George Washington High School and Shortridge High School will be retained under the plan.
