Welcome to MPS Insider!

Please enjoy this quick peek into some exciting happenings in MPS. Twice per month,  MPS Insider will give you access to information  that's fast to
read -- and fabulous -- about what our students and teachers are accomplishing.

Today, I'm very excited to share some stories about the many ways MPS is making life better for students in our district. Whether expanding access to AP classes or finding partners to support families in the home, every step we take is dedicated to serving the whole child, the whole student and the whole family.
 
I hope you share in my excitement as you read about the positive connections being made among students, families and the community. Milwaukee makes me MPS Proud!

Best,

We Need Your Opinion!
 
MPS is considering implementing a one-calendar system so all MPS students would begin school at the same time. This would allow us to improve educational opportunities for students and make more efficient use of district resources. Please take a few minutes to take this survey and give us your feedback.
