Contact Shari.Karlsrud@mpls.k12.mn.us to get connected with an opportunity that aligns with your availability.

Donate Equipment or Supplies

CTE student projects and equipment can be expensive. If you'd like to help offset expenses associated with teaching the latest industry-recognized technical skills to MPS high school students enrolled in our CTE programs across the school district, please contact Shari.Karlsrud@mpls.k12.mn.us.
