124D.861 ACHIEVEMENT AND INTEGRATION FOR MINNESOTA.
The “Achievement and Integration for Minnesota” program is established to pursue racial and economic integration and increase student academic achievement, create equitable educational opportunities and reduce academic disparities based on student’s diverse racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds in MN public schools.
Funds must be used for one or all of the following:
1. Integrated learning environments that prepare all students to be effective citizens and enhance social cohesion.
2. Policies and curricula and trained instructors, administrators, school counselors, and other advocates to support and enhance integrated learning environments...including innovative, research-based instruction, differentiated instruction and targeted interventions to improve achievement.
3. Rigorous, career and college readiness programs for under served student populations, consistent with section 120B.30 subdivision 1; integrated learning environments to increase student academic achievement; cultural fluency, competency and interaction; graduation and educational attainment rates and parent involvement.
Our current Achievement and Integration plan with the Minnesota Department of Education provides us with the seed money to fund a Literacy Instructional Coach position for the district. We will be piloting an integrated learning environment at Rochester CTECH during the 2018-2019 school year with these funds.
