Background Information

In light of Minnesota’s rapidly changing demographics, an examination of current desegregation policy is long overdue. Critique of the current policies, including the 2005 evaluation report from the Office of the Legislative Auditor, shows a need to clarify outcomes of the integration revenue program and identify measurable indicators of success.

The Minnesota School Integration Council is a statewide organization committed to equity and excellence for all. Minnesota School Integration Council (MSIC) exists to convene and advocate on all matters related to integration and educational equity in the state of Minnesota. With the knowledge and support of the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), MSIC is convening a statewide task force on school integration.

Final Report and Recommendations

On Monday, January 17, 2011, MSIC released the Final Report and Recommendations from the Statewide Task Force on School Integration.  According to MSIC President, Kathy Griebel, "It is most fitting that as we celebrate the life and work of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we offer Minnesota the opportunity to create an integrated society that ensures equal opportunity for all of its children.  Strong integration policy is a key strategy that will move our state toward achieving equitable outcomes for all learners."    Now is the time to renew our commitment to every child, every day.
