Community partnerships

We work in partnership with community-based organizations to build their capacity and help more families successfully navigate their school experience.

We believe that building a community of great schools for all our kids takes the efforts of a coordinated, aligned ecosystem.

By publishing Minneapolis School Finder, for example, we help families access vital information on school performance so they can make informed school selection decisions—and benefit from a high-quality education. Each year, 10,000 users gain vital information from this tool. We’re broadening the base of community organizations using Minneapolis School Finder to support families in their network and, through trainings, deepening how organizations use the tool. We hope Minneapolis School Finder helps families make the right choice, the first time.

We’re eager to build more tools to help families navigate K-12 systems—and to discover more great schools in our community that will help children thrive. We believe that every student deserves a learning experience that meets their needs.

More information coming soon. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about our work in the community, connect with our director of community partnerships, Osman Ahmed: oahmed@greatmnschools.org
