2015-17 Achievement & Integration Plan
The objective of the MPS Integration Plan is to provide a racially and culturally integrated academic environment that contributes to the holistic learning experience of students. Such an environment is designed to teach students, teachers, and the community about equity and diversity, and also provide for interracial and intercultural relationships and partnerships. The purpose of the integration plan is to provide equity and access for equitable student outcomes in the areas of: graduation rates, suspension rates, enrollment in advance courses, and college enrollment and completion, as well as in other areas of achievement through integration.
In order to achieve these outcomes, MPS has set both an academic achievement goal and integration goal, along with programs and strategies to assist in achieving those goals. Each of our programs or strategies aligns with the MDE Achievement and Integration Framework and supports at least one of the required plan components from that framework.
