No decision was reached today.
MILWAUKEE (June 23, 2016) – The following is an update regarding the Opportunity Schools and Partnership Program (OSPP):
Dear MPS Community,
We promised to provide updates on the Opportunity Schools and Partnership Program (OSPP) and we want to share the latest information directly with you.
Today, MPS Superintendent Darienne Driver and Board President Mark Sain met with County Executive Chris Abele and Demond Means, commissioner of the Opportunity Schools and Partnership Program or OSPP to discuss an alternative to their proposal. No decision was reached today, however, we appreciate the willingness of the OSPP to continue these discussions.
This is an important decision that will impact the future of public education in Milwaukee, potentially for decades to come. Our goal is to develop a plan that is in the best interest of all of the children of Milwaukee Public Schools.
We will update you as soon as we have additional information. For the latest updates, please visit our website at mpsmke.com/ospp.
