Milwaukee Public Schools Hosts Open Feedback Sessions
Community is invited to offer input to help guide district’s vision
MILWAUKEE (September 20, 2019) – MPS is hosting a series of feedback sessions designed to engage the entire community and seek input to help guide MPS in creating a learning community that achieves a unified vision. This process will be used to strengthen the district’s vision to provide an equitable educational environment that is child centered, supports achievement, and respects and embraces diversity.
 
Last month, the district launched a community survey designed to gather input about important education topics. Data and feedback from the thousands of submissions received will be shared and discussed at these events. After a brief presentation of the findings, attendees will break into small groups to discuss the findings of the survey and offer additional input.
 
“We are excited to host a series of listening sessions to hear from students, families, educators, staff, and all community members on topics to enhance the district,” said Dr. Keith Posley, superintendent.
 
The district remains committed to the Five Priorities for Success: increasing academic achievement and accountability, improving district and school culture, developing our staff, ensuring fiscal responsibility and transparency, and strengthening communication and collaboration.
 
All members of the Milwaukee community are invited to join the conversation at one or more sessions.

  • Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Reagan High School (4965 S. 20th Street) from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

  • Monday, September 23, 2019 at North Division High School (1011 W. Center Street) from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

  • Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at Vincent High School (7501 N. Granville Road) from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
