School Quality Review (SQR)
Minneapolis Public Schools participates in a School Quality Review process. This type of review is designed to help clearly identify a school’s unique strengths and opportunities for improvement. It goes beyond test scores to provide a thorough analysis of what’s really going on within each school community.

Review Methods and Reporting
The quality review began with a self assessment, completed by the principal. When this was completed, a reviewer from outside the district visited the school for two days. Minneapolis Public Schools used Cambridge Education, an experienced, international school improvement firm, to conduct these reviews.

The reviewer visited classrooms and interviewed teachers, parents and students to inform the School Quality Review report. This document is not a marketing document nor a deficiency report, but an object third party summary.

The report, along with additional data, is used by schools to identify strengths and areas for focused improvement in their annual School Improvement Plan (SIP).
