Navigating the Internet

We invite parents to keep informed about the latest Roosevelt news by utilizing all of Roosevelt's resources. But we understand that not everyone has access to computers and/or the computer skills necessary to navigate the internet. Thus this page is dedicated to connecting Roosevelt High School Parents with resources in Minneapolis and Saint Paul that can make accessing the internet easier than ever before.

District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC)
The District Parent Advisory Council is comprised of representatives from three MPS Area Councils: A,  B and  C, and all members are parents or guardians of K-12 students. DPAC meets regularly with the Superintendent, or his designee if he is unable to attend the meeting, and provides an opportunity for dialogue betweeen the Superintendent, district staff and parents of Minneapolis Public School children.

The Minneapolis Public Schools' web page for parents is located here.
