The Office of Academics goal is to innovate and accelerate school and student support. We work toward the consistency of national/Common Core State Standards aligned to curriculum and assessment. We strive for effective instructional practices and the improvement of access to quality educational instruction, resources, and programs to ensure evidence‐based, developmentally appropriate practices.
Milwaukee Public Schools is committed to preparing all students for college and careers.
High academic expectations — high standards, in other words — are an essential part of that commitment.
The MPS Comprehensive Literacy Plan, first implemented in 2010-11, and the district’s Comprehensive Math/Science Plan, first implemented in 2011-12, are aligned to the rigorous Common Core State Standards. More than 45 states, including Wisconsin, have adopted the Common Core.
