Community Partners Online

Minneapolis Public Schools partner with community groups to provide services to students and to allow groups to use district property through license or lease. Community Partners Online (CPO) certifies these organizations and individuals as community partners.

In an effort to foster effective partnerships, MPS has created a formal online process to certify these organizations and individuals as Community Partners.

CPO is an annual process which allows Community Partners to renew their contracts each year. It is also a key element in the district’s overall risk management program and provides advantages for all parties involved. 

The CPO website will be open to enter new certifications and renewals of community groups for the 2013-2014 school year beginning August 1, 2013.

Advantages to Students

  • Matches resources to school and student needs so services are targeted and the potential for student success is increased.

Advantages to Schools

  • Provides assurances that the Community Partner will adhere to district policies.
  • Provides assurances that background checks have been completed for Community Partners who provide services to students without the direct supervision of MPS staff.

Advantages to Community Organizations

  • The online process, used consistently at all schools, makes it easier for community organizations to make connections with schools.

The online process provides a means for Community Partners to continue relationships with schools in the event of MPS staff transition.
