Memorandum of Agreement

Memorandum of Agreement

In 2006, the American Indian community entered into a historic Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Minneapolis Public Schools.

The MOA document outlines our goal to dramatically improve academic achievement and graduation rates of American Indian students.

A renewed MOA was approved in 2012, strengthening our community partnerships, strategies, and accountability.

The MOA establised Indigenous best practices sites characterized by the integration of cultural relevance with academic rigor.

Anishinabe Academy, South High All Nations, AIOIC Takoda Prep and Nawayee Center School are currently identified as best practice sites in the MOA. 

The two named pathway middle schools in the MOA include Sanford and Northeast.
