The Minneapolis Board of Education is excited to be closer to having a new superintendent in place at MPS. They knew they had established an aggressive timeline to try to approve a contract with the preferred candidate, Ed Graff, by today. Due to meeting notice requirements, they proactively scheduled today’s meeting in case the process moved quickly. Yesterday they decided to postpone that meeting and approve the contract at the June meeting. Given the holiday weekend and negotiating parties’ availability, postponing the meeting allows more time to complete a quality contract process. The Board is excited to continue negotiations with Mr. Graff and looks forward to getting him to work soon.
