In a letter last week to the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) interim superintendent Michael Goar expressed the school district’s gratitude for our partnership on its recent education technology assessment.

The assessment, conducted in February, was designed to help MPS leaders as they work to align and optimize the academic, administrative and information technology systems serving the district's more than 35,000 students and 6,000 plus staff members.

Goar thanked University President Kaler, Vice President and Chief Information Officer Scott Studham, and the University of Minnesota for sharing expertise and knowledge in assessing the district’s IT performance. He commented, “Your collaboration will help us strengthen the technology systems that support student achievement, and the academic and operational goals of Minneapolis Public Schools.”
