Minneapolis Public Schools
At Minneapolis Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's
society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where
they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new
area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby.
Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first
step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's
district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require
a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right
education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source
for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a
link to the Minneapolis public schools website.
Minneapolis Public Schools believes that you are your child's first and most
important teacher. With that in mind, we know how important it is to empower
families with resources and opportunities to help their child succeed.
There are great tips and guides that give parents tools to help their child
succeed in school. Minneapolis public schools encourage parents to become
involved at either the school or District level.
Parents and other adults can also explore the many exciting Community Education
classes offered at convenient MPS locations. You can read about all the class
options and even register online.
The community's continued support is critical for Minneapolis Public Schools to
achieve our goal: academic excellence for all students. Our vision is that
Minneapolis Public Schools will be safe, orderly environments where students,
staff and families share high expectations for academic achievement and personal
behavior. Likewise, we envision a community in which everyone helps create a
mutually respectful, fair and caring environment where diversity is valued.
Here are just a few examples of how Minneapolis Public Schools engages the
community to help ensure our students are receiving the support they need:
The district has held district-wide community conversations focusing on issues
such as assets, attendance, behavior and special education services. At these
discussions, hundreds of students, community members, teachers, and principals
discuss ways they can work together to help students achieve. If you are
interested in participating in future community conversations, contact the
Communications Department at 612-668-0230.
Lucille Kitchen Forums
Throughout the school year, Minneapolis Public Schools hosts the public policy
forum at Lucille's Kitchen, 2013 Plymouth Avenue North. The forums provide an
opportunity for the district to have open and informal discussions with the
African American community about education issues facing students. These forums
air live at 9:30 a.m. on KMOJ radio, 89.9 FM.
Insight's "The Village"
The Village is a four-page weekly supplement included in Insight's regular
newspaper. Published four times a year, the MPS Village features education
issues primarily affecting African American Students.
To provide parents and the broader community with relevant, detailed information
about school performance, Minneapolis Public Schools partnered with The
Minneapolis Foundation and the Greater Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce to
release Measuring Up, A Report on the Minneapolis Public Schools. The report,
issued every two years, provides a comprehensive look at the state's largest
school district and measures individual school progress in the areas of test
scores, student attendance, suspension rates and gifted/talented programming.
Participation in Neighborhood Fairs
To help let the community know more about the district, Minneapolis Public
Schools participates in numerous community and ethnic fairs, including the Urban
League Family Day, Camden Neighborhood Fair, the Minnesota Parent Education
Fair, and National Night Out.
If you'd like Minneapolis Public Schools to participate in your neighborhood
fair, please contact the Communications Department at 612-668-0230.
