INDIANAPOLIS — This will be a big week for the future of the proposed $100 million tax referendum to benefit Indianapolis Public Schools.

On Monday, IPS leaders are hosting a forum at New Era Church on 517 W. 30th Street. Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting and ask questions or give comments. The forum begins at 6 p.m.

On Tuesday, the IPS Board of School Commissioners will vote on how much money they expect to ask for in the proposed referendum. The meeting and vote begins at 6 p.m. at the John Morton-Finney Center for Educational Services on 120 E. Walnut St.

IPS has already passed a $52 million capital referendum for the November ballot. But the board wants to hear from the public and allow for people to learn more before the board votes.

Also, the board is considering an operating referendum for teacher salaries. Last week, the Indy Chamber recommended a $100 million operating referendum for teacher’s salaries, but the IPS board needs to vote if that would be sufficient.
