Minneapolis Public Schools Policies

 District policies support the academic success of students and are informed by citizens, parents, students and district staff.

Your input is important in this process. 

AT LEFT  you can click on Public Input to give your thoughts on current policy issues under discussion.

The School Board of Education votes to approve policies, which are brought forward by the district's superintendent with the approval of the Board's standing committee on policies.

At left are links to Minneapolis Public Schools' policies, and regulations.

  • Policies and Regulations are divided roughly into chapter subject divisions by number .
  • Alphabetical List can be useful if you know the title of the policy.
  • Policies are numbered and Regulations carry the policy number and a letter.
  • Policies generally answer the question WHAT? and Regulations generally answer the question HOW?

The policies are currently undergoing a systematic review and revision 

  • Please check back to see if the policy or regulation you want has been revised, replaced or repealed. District review of policies and regulations is ongoing;  policies that have been revised or replaced in the past ten years are also placed on a three -year cycle of review.
  • As changes are made notice will be made under the section "Recent Changes" at left.  Click on that title for a list of changes made.  These lists will be by the date of the Board Resolution and will be included in this section for three months.

This online resource is currently the only up to date version of our Policy manual.  Individual schools may have outdated paper policy manuals that should be compared to this online resource to make sure that the currently approved policies are being followed.

For questions about policies, the policy review process, or to suggest policies to the district, please contact the Director of Policy Development, Nan Miller via email at   Nan.Miller@mpls.k12.mn.us
