MPS Values Survey Results

Thank you to the more than 3,700 people who took the time to respond to our MPS Values Survey. The purpose of the survey was to learn the deeply held values of our community and how those values align with the MPS Strategic Plan, Acceleration 2020.

The survey results are very nuanced. They are guidelines for how to proceed and, in some cases, vary across our diverse community. We believe the survey reflects the deep values of the families and staff we serve, but we must also recognize that they expressed these values without the benefit of having the actual budget numbers in front of them. It is our job to take these guidelines and apply them as judiciously as possible while meeting the obligations set forth by contracts and law, and while also moving the district toward a long-term structurally balanced budget. 

What the survey results tell us is where additional communication, feedback or dialogue may be necessary to find the best ways to do this. This will be a process of give and take involving community input along the way.

We look forward to further dialogue with our community.
