MPS to hold meetings on stimulus funds
Sessions will inform community of district options, hear ideas

Milwaukee Public Schools is scheduled to receive much-needed stimulus funding over a two-year period. MPS is developing an action plan to use the funds the district expects to receive. Some of the funds are specifically for Title I, designed to assist children in poverty, and special education. The federal stimulus bill also increases the district’s borrowing capacity.

To assure that this money is used in the best possible manner to increase achievement of all students, the district has scheduled three community information / input meetings to discuss some district options for using the money. Community members will be able to learn more about the potential options and share ideas.

MPS is holding the following sessions to discuss the stimulus funds with parents and other community members:
