Four MPS Schools Taking Corrective Action under No Child Left Behind Act. Research Brief. Volume 92, Number 4
Public Policy Forum
Four schools in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) district now have appeared on the state's list of schools needing improvement for four years in a row. After four years on the list, schools are required under federal law to take corrective action, which could include restructuring the internal organization of the school, replacing staff, instituting a new curriculum, or extending the school year, among other options. Bell Middle School, Kosciuszko Middle School, Malcolm X Academy, and Muir Middle School are among 48 schools in southeastern Wisconsin school districts that were identified for improvement this year by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction in compliance with the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Of the region's 94 school districts, three (Kenosha, Milwaukee, and Racine) were represented on this list, along with one charter school authorized by the city of Milwaukee. To be placed on the improvement list, a school must fail to meet the same state objective two years in a row. In addition to the 48 schools needing improvement, 97 other schools missed at least one objective this year, but will not be classified as needing improvement unless they fail to meet the same objective again next year.
