Maple Lake Elementary repeats as Reward School

Maple Lake Elementary staff celebrate being named a Reward School for performing in the top 10 percent of Minnesota schools that receive Title I funding.


Some educators may be complacent with placing in the top 15 percent among similar schools.
Maple Lake Elementary’s staff does not appear to fall into that category.
After being named a Reward School for ranking among the top 15 percent of schools receiving Title I funding with a Multiple Measurement Rating of 87.88 percent, MLE raised the bar even higher.
The school’s MMR has risen to 95.37 percent, which puts the school in the top 4 percent of Title I schools.
“It means all our efforts and collaboration with each other and our families is being recognized,” Principal Kris Harlan said.
She believes a couple different factors have contributed to the school’s success.
“We became a Q Comp school three years ago,” Harlan said. “The professional learning community has been built in for staff to collaborate and share. I really think that proactive dialogue and being able to share what works has been beneficial.
