SIP/FIP Improvement & Involvement Plans & Title 1 Information

School Improvement Plan (SIP)

The Minneapolis Public School district holds itself accountable for continuous improvement to close the achievement gap while raising achievement for all students. The Continuous Improvement process addresses the needs of all schools and all academic departments. MPS is committed to using data to inform and focus improvement efforts.

The MPS Continuous Improvement Process is also aligned to “Needs Improvement” as defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

The School Improvement Plan (SIP) serves two purposes:

  1. It is a tool that is used to assist school staff in their continuous school improvement efforts.
  2. It fulfills district, state and federal requirements, including requirements for Schoolwide Title I, Targeted Assistance and AYP / Needs Improvement Plans.

 

WE ARE A TITLE I SCHOOL. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

Title I is a federal program that provides money to schools and districts to help us make sure all children have equal access to high-quality education, and to meet our state’s educational standards. Title I status is based on the number of students in our school from low income families. Our school is a targeted assistance Title I program, which means only students who are eligible benefit from services we provide with Title I funding.
