Superintendent Ed Graff 100-Day Findings
After 100 days on the job as Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools, Superintendent Ed Graff has outlined his findings and vision for the future. 
Superintendent Graff has made significant progress on his four goals for the first 100 days in the position, which were to:
  • Establish a strong working relationship with the Board of Education.
  • Develop an understanding of the district’s strategy, structure, strengths and weaknesses — as well as opportunities and obstacles ahead.
  • Build relationships with key internal stakeholders.
  • Build relationships with key external stakeholders.
By meeting with students, staff, families, community members, and community partners, visiting numerous schools, reviewing data and examining the strategic plan, and receiving feedback from staff surveys and the Council of Great City Schools, Superintendent Graff came up with the following findings and recommendations moving forward.
We have numerous reasons to be proud of Minneapolis Public Schools. Our students are ambitious, capable and ready for success. In schools throughout the city, staff are committed to seeing students succeed. Across the community, engaged families, passionate partners and countless other people believe in our district’s potential. At the same time, we have a lot of opportunity for growth.
We have identified four key areas for growth. If we work collectively to address these areas, we will see significant improvements with student performance.
