MPS District Plan and Seward


January 2020 | Seward Roundtable

The January 9, 2020 Seward Montessori Round Table Meeting focused primarily on the Minneapolis Public School District’s proposed Comprehensive District Design (CDD). There were approximately 150 parents in attendance.

Please look below to download comprehensive meeting minutes from this meeting. Parents are encouraged to engage in this process and to learn how proposed changes will affect all of our students and families.  Please fill out the District Survey (  and watch for more information and plans from Seward Montessori school leadership and parent organizations. 

What is it?

The Comprehensive District Design examines and makes recommendations on how MPS educates students, how the school system works to meet the needs of underserved populations and how we ensure resources are available to meet our goals.

When will it happen?

  • April 2020 — Board will vote on major parts of the design
  • 2021 and 2022 school years — Changes in recommended school pathways or boundaries unless urgently required before this time

How can I be involved?

  • Attend community meetings planned for January and February 2020
  • Attend, livestream or watch recordings of Board meetings
  • Send feedback via the survey
  • Talk to your school principal
  • Request a CDD info session for your school or organization
