GE Schools Grant

"Achieving Excellence Through Innovation"

The GE Foundation Grant assists nineteen schools in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and best educational practices. These schools are to serve as a model for others as they look toward implementation of best educational practices that prepare our students for success in becoming college and career ready.

GE Schools Online Video Library

The Online Video Library is designed to be used as a tool, created by the district, to give an insight into classrooms that are in the process of implementing the Common Core State Standards. The intent of each video is to inspire and share new ideas, as well as to showcase the excellent teaching and learning happening everyday in the Milwaukee Public Schools. The library is a place where teachers, academic coaches and admininstrators can visit and explore. We can all learn from each other as we continue to teach, learn and lead.

We believe that one of the keys to effective education is building partnerships with local businesses, non-profits, and stakeholders. Together we are working to bring the Common Core State Standards implementation to scale across the district.
