The Minneapolis Public School district holds itself accountable for continuous improvement to close the achievement gap while raising achievement for all students. The Continuous Improvement process addresses the needs of all schools and all academic departments. MPS is committed to using data to inform and focus improvement efforts.
The MPS Continuous Improvement Process is also aligned to “Needs Improvement” as defined by No Child Left Behind.
The School Improvement Plan (SIP) serves two purposes:
- It is a tool that is used to assist school staff in their continuous school improvement efforts.
- It fulfills district, state, and federal requirements, including requirements for Schoolwide Title I, Targeted Assistance and AYP / Needs Improvement Plans.
