Strategic Plan: Acceleration 2020
Goals 1 & 2: Improved Student Outcomes AND Equity



GOAL OWNER: Chief Academic Officer 


  • Ensure positive outcomes for students birth to grade 12.
  • All students will have engaging and relevant experiences and supports that allow them to be Kindergarten-ready; leave fifth grade ready for a rigorous secondary-level curriculum; middle grades ready for rigorous high school curriculum; and graduate high school ready for college and career.
  • Students’ global competencies for the 21st century will be built, including recognizing bilingualism and biliteracy as an asset. 


  • Maintain high expectations for all students regardless of race, economic status, geography or program (i.e. special education, advanced learners, English language learners, homeless/highly mobile, etc.).
  • Increase opportunities and acceleration for previously underserved groups.
  • Reduce the academic achievement gap and behavior disparities between white students and students of color.
  • Ensure all MPS schools are delivering a high quality education and invest in targeted interventions for those schools that are the furthest behind.
