First MPS Progress Report submitted by Independent Expert

Under DRW’s settlement with the Department of Public Instruction in its longstanding class action lawsuit against Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), an independent expert, Dr. Alan Coulter, must analyze the progress that MPS is making in providing early intervening services to children who need it in all of its schools. Under the settlement Dr. Coulter will issue a mid-year and a year end report. He recently submitted his first mid-year report, which you can read here: MPS Progress Report, along with a cover letter to MPS Superintendent William Andrekopoulos and MPS Board President Michael Bonds, which you can read here: Cover letter.
