The Indianapolis Public Schools Board is accepting questions from the community for consideration during the public interviews with finalists for the superintendent position. 

Last week the IPS School Board interviewed five semi-finalists to be the next superintendent. Names of the chosen finalists are expected to be publically released soon.

Anyone can submit questions to the finalist on the district website. The IPS Board will consider all questions and topics submitted by the public during individual public interviews with the finalists.

The public interviews begin 5 p.m., June 18 at the district headquarters, 120 E. Walnut St.

The school board hopes to name a new superintendent by the end of June, according to a distirct press release.

Aleesia Johnson, the former deputy superintendent and innovation school officer, is the interim superintendent. She is the first African-American woman to serve as the district’s superintendent.

Johnson applied for the superintendent job. The district declined to comment if Johnson is one of the finalists.

Former superintendent Lewis Ferebee left IPS earlier this year, to lead Washington, D.C. public schools.
