MPS strategic plan, public's input wanted

Milwaukee Public Schools is looking for feedback from all Milwaukee families, residents and community partners as part of its 2023-2028 strategic planning process.

The school district distributed surveys to MPS students, families and staff – as well as city residents – on Tuesday, Jan. 17. Some survey participants will have the opportunity to participate in focus groups later in the year.

Feedback will be collected through February to provide additional insight into the planning process. According to a news release, the information collected "will help MPS identify priorities and performance targets over the next five years."

"MPS already offers the most robust network of academic and career readiness programs in the state.
