School Year Theme Emphasizes Continued Work on Equity

July 9, 2020

Moorhead Area Public Schools is committed to developing the maximum potential of every learner to thrive in a changing world. Nothing tested our mission more than a global pandemic challenging well-working systems and demanding innovation and flexibility. 

Teachers, administrators and staff worked around the clock to identify solutions that would provide the education our students need and deserve under unique circumstances. Creating equitable learning opportunities for all students is a long-standing goal and focus of Moorhead Area Public Schools. 

We are excited to announce the theme for the 2020-21 school year: Excellence Through Equity. 

The new school year is filled with many unknowns, but the commitment to providing our students with equitable learning opportunities continues to be at the base of every decision. Three comprehensive plans for safe re-entry to school for our students and staff this fall are currently being developed based on guidance from the Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota Department of Health. Final state guidance will be given at the end of July. 

Regardless of which plan the district is allowed to implement this fall, Moorhead Area Public Schools has a reputation for excellence, one that not even a global pandemic can stop. We are excited to work with our parents, community and team to continue this tradition into a new school year.
