  • After a lengthy discussion about picking a topic for the next EDIA study, the board narrowed their interests down to two topics: literacy and site councils. The staff at the district annually do one in depth study per year.
    • Staff said that if the board picked a topic at this meeting, they could begin research over the summer.
    • The board will vote on the topic at its August meeting.
  • The board heard a presentation on a new tech levy that will be put before the voters this fall. The levy will raise $20 million for technical purchases, allowing those operating funds that had been used for tech to be used for academic and other spending.

The Minneapolis Board of Education, or School Board, is the elected body responsible for governing finances and policies, establishing and monitoring the strategic direction and goals, and hiring and evaluating the district’s superintendent, who serves as the district’s chief executive.

The School Board is comprised of nine directors, elected by Minneapolis voters, and two student representatives who are appointed. The superintendent also serves as an ex-officio member of the board. Board members serve four-year terms, beginning in January after being elected in November. Each year in January, the school board selects its leadership, which includes a chair, vice-chair, clerk, and treasurer.
