Monday was the first day back to school for 30,000 IPS students.

That morning, Superintendent Dr Lewis Ferebee greeted returning students at Washington Irving Elementary School.

It's been a year since Dr Ferebee took on the task of turning IPS around. He said last year was a transitional year, but this year parents and students will really notice changes.

"Expect students to be engaged. We are really counting on our educators to ensure that our lessons and our instructional delivery is exciting, interesting and engaging for our students," explained Dr. Ferebee.

Over the past year, the district has seen a re-organization of administration as well as new priorities for improvement in classrooms.
