Comprehensive District Design

Please note: More information will soon be posted on CDD in preparation for the April Board meeting. Click here to view the CDD materials listed under the April 28, 2020, Board meeting.

What is the Comprehensive District Design (CDD)?

The Comprehensive District Design examines and makes recommendations on how MPS educates students, how the school system works to meet the needs of underserved populations and how we ensure resources are available to meet our goals.

Why is CDD needed? 

MPS’s current  structure deprives a significant number of students — especially students of color and low-income students — of a well-rounded education.  Learn more here.

What does CDD have the potential to do? 

  • Eliminate longstanding policies and practices that disadvantage students of color and low-income students. Learn more here
  • Ensure MPS follows new federal law about student access to effective teaching
  • Increase achievement through more equitable access to rigorous and relevant coursework

When will CDD happen? 

  • April 2020 — Board will vote on major parts of the design
  • 2021 and 2022 school years — Changes in recommended school pathways or boundaries unless urgently required before this time
