Thank you

Dear MPS families and Minneapolis community members,

Minneapolis Public Schools is grateful for the support of voters in Minneapolis. Three-quarters of voters supported our referendum questions, and we believe this means we’re on the right track toward providing the education all of our students deserve. We can only do this important work together.

This new revenue is just part of our work to remain a strong, sustainable school district. In the coming months, we will need you to continue to stand with us as we advocate for schools to receive the state and federal funding they deserve—especially for special education and English language services. And as we develop our 2019-20 budget, we will need your involvement as we determine what resources, programs and support we are able to provide at each one of our schools.

Thank you, again, for your commitment to our students, our schools, and our Minneapolis community. We appreciate the investment you have made, and we are committed to equitably using these resources to improve student achievement and strengthen our school communities.
