Transition Update- March 1, 2012

Dear MPLS Parents and Students,

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa approved UNI's recommendation to close MPLS, effective June 30, 2012.  We realize and understand that this decision will affect you, the staff, and teachers in various ways.

In an effort to increase communication, we will be providing information on a weekly basis to all families. In this first communication, we will provide information about an opportunity for all parents and students to ask questions about enrolling in their home district or completing open enrollment forms.  Your home school district may also be sending correspondence to you about your options.

* Opportunity for Parents and Students to receive Information *

For your convenience, representatives from surrounding public and private school districts will be available on March 5, from 3-6 pm in the MPLS gymnasium. 

Each school will have 2 to 4 representatives available at tables throughout the gymnasium to answer specific questions about their school, such as the services they provide, their academic calendar, and the process to transfer academic credit.  Also, a representative from the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union will be available.

If you have any additional questions, please contact MPLS at 319.273.2514 or the College of Education at 319.273.2717.  Again, we want to provide personalized information for you to address your questions and assist you in this transition.
