MSF was commissioned by Minnesota Comeback
MN Comeback leads a broad coalition of 80 schools, community partners and funders coordinating around K-12 systems change so all students can access great schools. And the Community Engagement Team at MN Comeback is committed to making sure all families have objective, well-rounded information on the schools in our community. Last fall, the Community Engagement Team landed on a school resource guide and directory as a critical tool to supporting parents.
Following parent events spanning two years, MSF responds to an expressed need: Parents want a simpler way to find critical information about a school – graduation rates, academic performance, demographics, etc.
Now, MN Comeback is teaming up with community partners to make sure parents in our community are aware of and have access to this guide. If you’re interested in helping, contact Rashad Turner, director of community engagement at MN Comeback: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is MN Comeback’s first time collecting comprehensive information on every school in Minneapolis. MN Comeback welcomes all feedback so they can make MSF stronger and more accessible for parents next year: info@MinneapolisSchoolFinder.org.
About MN Comeback
MN Comeback leads a diverse coalition of stakeholders working together to invest deeply in the strategies that are proven to help a community of great schools succeed, and ensure that all Minneapolis kids — especially children most in-need — have access to a rigorous and relevant education.
We know that access to great schools, not a child’s background or ability, is the most important factor in student achievement. So we’re uniting stakeholders across our community to work in tight coordination on the strategies that are proven to help schools grow and improve: increasing the number of extraordinary teachers and leaders, fostering deep community and parent engagement, advocating for supportive public policy, and helping schools access quality facilities.
This collective approach brings much-needed alignment to our goals and investments, and engages school communities as authentic partners in real change. Our vision is clear: we will increase access to great schools and close the opportunity gap for 30,000 Minneapolis kids.
We are working together to accomplish more than we could independently.
MN Comeback guides a coalition of 80 schools, community organizations and funders working in tight coordination on the most impactful strategies to support our schools’ success. We represent all school sectors — district, charter and independent — and our partners range from large community foundations to small family foundations and advocacy organizations to the school district. Most importantly, our work is informed by parents and school communities, and what rigorous and relevant schools mean to them.
