E-mail Print PDF
The Minneapolis Public Schools will hold a series of community town hall meetings during the weeks of September 7 and 14 on Changing School Options, a comprehensive plan the MPS administration will submit to the Board of Education on September 1 to create financial sustainability and build a new foundation for academic success. At the meetings, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about school changes recommended for the 2010-2011 school year, ask questions and share comments.

The meeting agenda will include a brief overview of district-wide recommendations and strategies to strengthen academics at struggling schools; a question and answer session moderated by area parent leaders; and area-specific handouts will provide rationale for closings and benefits of changes. Hmong, Spanish and Somali interpretive services will be available at all meetings.
