The Minneapolis Public School district is committed to providing a variety of opportunities to meet the needs of students. These programs provide a caring environment for students who need services beyond the traditional school day and during the summer to meet state and district standards. Students may be referred to alternative schools through one of the traditional Minneapolis public schools or students may choose to attend one of these schools.
Contract Alternative Programs
Contract alternative schools are run by community agencies who hire staff and provide the facility. Their mission is to serve those students who've not found success in the traditional school model. Students attending Contract Alternative schools continue to be Minneapolis Public Schools students during their enrollment.
