ACHIEVEMENT AND INTEGRATION
The purpose of the Achievement and Integration for Minnesota program is to pursue racial and economic integration, increase student achievement, create equitable educational opportunities, and reduce academic disparities based on students' diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds in Minnesota public schools.
Districts eligible to participate in this program include those required to submit an Achievement and Integration plan under Minnesota School Desegregation/Integration Rules 3535.0100-0180 and those districts with a collaborative plan on file with the commissioner during FY 2013.
Currently, 134 school districts receive funding from this program. Participation is determined by the number of protected-class students relative to the number of protected-class students in adjoining districts or schools based on October 1 enrollment.
