Bell Changes for 2018-19 School Year
Tuesday, January 16, 2018 2:20 PM

As part of MPS’s overall efforts to address its budget deficit, we have looked at how to make transportation services more cost-efficient.  One of the most costly factors is that there are 29 different start times for 68 schools.  As a result of this analysis, our school is one of 20 other schools whose start and end times (bell times) are being proposed to change, effective next school year.

MPS Budget Discussions
Monday, January 08, 2018 9:15 AM

How can Minneapolis Public Schools balance our budget? By focusing on what counts and joining with families and our Minneapolis community. Please join us in February for a community discussion about how we can move MPS forward. We’ll talk about why MPS is recommending changes for the 2018-19 school year, how they may affect our learning communities and what can be done to make any changes easier.

Visit www.mpls.k12.mn.us/community_discussions to learn more.

How Do We Balance The Budget?
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 11:10 AM

MPS is looking for input from our entire community on how to best do that. We hope that the information on these webpages and in the survey you’ll find here will answer questions for you, but we also hope it will also stimulate ideas about how you’d like to see MPS move forward. Everything is on the table. We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results. We look forward to hearing from you – and to making MPS stronger than ever.
