    Middle school literacy study

    Mounds View Public Schools has been working with the District Management Group (DMGroup) to examine how District middle schools provide instruction in English Language Arts (ELA). After the DMGroup completed the qualitative and quantitative data analyses, a final report was shared with the District's curriculum team. Director of Curriculum and Instruction Angie Peschel, Elementary Literacy Coach Shannon Roney, and Middle School ELA Coaches Bethany DeCent and Heather Oechsli presented recommendations from the report to the Board, along with details about how the District's curriculum team is responding to the opportunities presented by the DMGroup.

    Final placement of certified staff on unrequested leave

    At the April 10 meeting, the Board approved a proposal to place a number of certified staff on unrequested leave of absence for the 2018-2019 school year. Since that meeting, none of the teachers or learning resource teachers who were included in the proposal requested a hearing. Failure to request a hearing is deemed acquiescence to the proposed action; therefore two learning resource teachers were placed on unrequested leave of absence. 

    District Operational Plan

    The 2018-2019 draft District Operational Plan (DOP) - which was developed by the Superintendent and his Cabinet - was presented to the Board for initial discussion. The DOP is the annual administrative work plan of the District. It is directly related to the District's vision and to the School Board's strategic directions for the year. A final plan will be presented and approved at the June 12 Board meeting. 

    North Suburban Post-Secondary Success Consortium

    The Board received an update on the work of North Suburban Post-Secondary Success Consortium (NSPSSC) as outlined in the 2017-2018 District Operational Plan. This was the first year of the North Suburban Post-Secondary Success Consortium (NSPSSC) which consists of five districts including Mounds View, Columbia Heights, Fridley, Roseville and Spring Lake Park.
