Acceleration 2020: Every child college and career ready
**NEW** MPS ONLINE SCORECARD
In September 2014, the Board of Education approved a new strategic plan for Minneapolis Public Schools, called Acceleration 2020. The plan includes six high-level strategic goals for our district:
In addition to these six goals, we have adopted specific performance measures with ambitious targets for each goal. All of them were developed in the big, bold spirit of the 5-8-10 plan, which states as our goals:
Under the 5-8-10 measures, there are a number of additional measures and performance targets incorporated into Acceleration 2020 to assess the district’s performance on the six goals—45 measures in total. The MPS Online Scorecard provides current and historical performance data for these 45 measures.
Our targets are intentionally high to reignite a sense of urgency in the system and ensure that everyone is operating with growth mindset. Meeting these targets is absolutely possible. Under this plan, we will achieve our vision of every child graduating college and career ready.

MPS monitors the performance of each school through a comprehensive accountability system. We also use other state and federal performance measures to understand how our schools can better meet students’ needs. MPS shares this in-depth school performance information to increase transparency, provide equitable access to information and – most importantly – support and encourage our stakeholders to engage in our schools’ improvement efforts.
