2014 State of Minnesota Legislative Session
 
The Minnesota State Legislature will convene for the 2014 session at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 25. During the 2014 session, Minneapolis Public Schools will ask legislators to support our efforts to ensure quality teaching in our classrooms, meet the needs of our global learners and be adequately reimbursed for services and keep our facilities operating effectively.
 
Our agenda asks for clarification and/or modification in the following areas: teacher evaluation, teacher licensure reciprocity, Q Comp, English Language Proficiency cap, early education, special education, community education, facilities and the charter school policy, as well as establishing a seal of biliteracy. 
 
We must continue to advocate for the further investment in our schools and support the changes that our school district, our staff members, our students and their families need to improve outcomes for all Minneapolis children.
