Achievement and Integration Plan

Achievement and Integration Plan

Minneapolis Public Schools is identified as a racially isolated district by the Minnesota Department of Education. This means MPS has a higher proportion of "protected-class" students (or students of color) compared to our adjoining districts. This means MPS is required to submit an Achievement and Integration plan and is eligible to receive funding to support achievement and integration efforts.
