Focused Instruction

Why is Focused Instruction right for Minneapolis Public Schools?

  • Focused Instruction is about improving equity.
    MPS is committed to raising the achievement of all students while simultaneously closing the opportunity and achievement gap.
  • Focused Instruction supports principals and teachers as instructional leaders.
    Focused Instruction provides the systems, tools and professional development staff need to deliver an exceptional learning experience for every student.
  • Focused Instruction transforms educational outcomes.
    The system has a proven track record of improving achievement in diverse urban districts such as Houston, Boston, Long Beach, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg, NC.
  • Focused Instruction can be tailored to meet the needs of the students here in Minneapolis.
    Our plan for Focused Instruction will draw upon best practices and lessons learned in other districts. It will also call upon leaders from within MPS to identify and replicate effective strategies from our own schools.
