MPS seeks feedback on early start date calendar proposal

smiling studentsMilwaukee Public Schools is moving forward with a plan to seek Board and Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction approval to implement one district school year calendar with an early start date for all schools and students. 

Pursuing an early start date calendar has three-fold benefits:

  • Milwaukee's children learn and succeed
  • Milwaukee's families gain consistency and support
  • Milwaukee's citizens save tax dollars
