Frequently Asked Questions

What does being a contracted partner mean?
Contracting is the district’s process for insuring that common standards are consistently applied for all potential partners. To successfully be contracted means that you have established a relationship with the Minneapolis Public Schools as either a provider of services or programming through our formal process. Certain documentation will be required depending on the type of relationship with MPS.

If a community organization has the same program in multiple MPS schools, does a separate program information form need to be completed for each school? 
No; only one program information form needs to be submitted.  If a community organization has multiple programs to offer, then a separate form needs to be completed for each different program. 

Can the program start in the school before the contracting process is complete?
Programs are not allowed to begin until the final signed contract is received from MPS.

Who needs to complete the Year-End Survey?
Any community organization providing services to students within schools needs to complete the Year End Survey.

How will the District evaluate Community Partners’ programs and services?
The District is in the process of hiring an Evaluator to work specifically on Community Partner evaluations.
