Literacy/English Language Arts

Literacy is the foundation of all learning, and is one of Minneapolis Public Schools' four priorities. Improving literacy across MPS is key to achieving equitable educational outcomes in our community.

Our Literacy Vision

MPS students will become productive, inspired and literate global citizens through the development of effective reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing skills.

  • MPS students are engaged, independent & critical readers, writers and researchers.
  • We believe in implementing explicit structures to support students and educators in building lifelong literacy skills.
  • All MPS students are prepared for the discipline-specific literacy demands of college and career.
