Addressing Policies on Student Behavior/Practices to Support Learning: The rate at which students of color – especially African-American males – are suspended and disciplined in our schools is alarming. On average, 1 in 5 African-American males in MPS is suspended annually versus 1 in 29 white males.

Report on Academic Progress
We are committed to our academic transformation efforts. The Shift campaign brings urgency to increase outcomes for students and improve district operations to support schools. One strategy is to improve instruction in core subjects by fully implementing Focused Instruction. Together with the expansion of successful targeted interventions, we can change the performance trajectory for many of our students.
Quality Compensation, or Q Comp, is an exciting opportunity for MPS to take advantage of $9.17 million in state and local funding this year. Its purpose is to support teachers as they work to advance outcomes for students.
