Who We Are

The Indian Prairie Education Association (IPEA) is a professional organization of over 2,000 teachers in Indian Prairie School District 204 serving the Aurora, Naperville, and Bolingbrook areas. Our collective mission is to make sure Indian Prairie’s schools are a place of hope, academic success and growth for all students.

The IPEA is part of the Illinois Education Association and National Education Association. Together with130,000 IEA members statewide and 3 million NEA members nationally, we strive to achieve a common goal. Every student has the right to have access to a first class public education.

We are members of a committed group of educators who have joined together to fight for the right of students, teachers and school personnel to learn and work in a safe environment, be fairly compensated, and provide a first class education for every student we get the privilege to teach. We are here to support our core belief that ALL students deserve a great public education.

IPEA serves 35 schools spanning Aurora, Naperville and Bolingbrook.  The district consists of:

  • 1 Preschool:  Prairie Children Preschool
  • 21 Elementary Schools: Brookdale, Brooks, Builta, Clow, Cowlishaw, Fry, Georgetown, Gombert, Graham, Kendall, Longwood, McCarty, Owen, Patterson, Peterson, Spring Brook, Steck, Watts, Welch, White Eagle, and Young.

  • 4 High Schools: Metea Valley, Neuqua Valley, Waubonsie Valley and Indian Plains.

The District’s 2,000 plus teachers have been represented by the IPEA since it was chartered as an IEA local in 1983.

Since starting as a small rural/suburban district, IPEA has grown to be the second largest IEA local in Illinois.
