Data, Evaluation & Research Requests

Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) partners with universities, foundations, research institutions, the State of Minnesota, and the U.S. Department of Education, to discover practices in education that advance student achievement. Data, evaluation and research requests, however, are secondary to our goal of educating our students, and is a privilege reserved for proposals that:

  1. Support the support four key priorities (literacy, equity, social emotional learning and student support systems),
  2. Avoid duplication of effort, and
  3. Do not interfere with instruction or the efficient operation of MPS or its schools.

The process for requesting data, performing research or evaluations at MPS is intended both to protect that primary responsibility, and to give reasonable access to individuals, institutions, and organizations to conduct approved evaluation and research projects.
