Minneapolis Public Schools Board reschedules meetings

The Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) Board has rescheduled its regular discussion meetings from Tuesday afternoons to evenings in order to accommodate families that can't attend during the day.

Discussion meetings will now run from 6 to 8 p.m. at MPS headquarters, 807 Broadway Ave. NE.

Typically during discussion meetings, school board members discuss agenda items and hear from MPS staff, among others. Although public comments may not be considered until after the meetings, community members are welcome to listen in on these forums.

Meetings will also be videotaped and broadcast live on Cable Channel 15 and KBEM FM 88.5 (Jazz 88). A schedule of playback times is available at www.mpls.k12.mn.us/Channel_15.html.

Additionally, Board meetings are available online to be downloaded, saved or subscribed to in the form of podcasts.
