Achievement and Integration
The purpose of the Achievement and Integration for Minnesota program is to
- pursue racial and economic integration,
- increase student achievement,
- create equitable educational opportunities, and
- reduce academic disparities based on students' diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds in Minnesota public schools.
MPS 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. The Equity and Integration Team oversees the MPS Achievement & Integration plan and budget.
