Below you will find a variety of resources that may be helpful for school teams exploring Community Partnership School status. While the CPS model is unique to Minneapolis Public Schools, it may be helpful to draw from examples of Innovation and Community Schools across the country. Please note, these links will all take you to external web pages which are not associated with MPS. The MPS Community Partnership Schools process does not mirror any of these models but they may serve as a launching point for planning.
