NorthWest Suburban

Independent School District

The Northwest Suburban Integration School District #6078 (NWSISD) was created in 2001 in response to the State of Minnesota’s Desegregation Rule. Specifically, NWSISD was established based on the identification of the Brooklyn Center and ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools as racially isolated entities as defined by the Desegregation Rule. 

NWSISD includes the following eight member districts: Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools,  Mounds View Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Public Schools.  

NWSISD works with districts in the consortium to provide programs and services that promote integrated learning environments and enhance diversity and cultural awareness.  The goals of NWSISD are as follows:

  1. NWSISD will assist member districts in creating a culturally inclusive learning environment.
  2. NWSISD will help create inter-district interactions among students, staff and parents that improve inter-cultural competency and increase student achievement.
  3. NWSISD and member districts will actively recruit candidates from racially diverse backgrounds for member districts.

In order to achieve these goals, NWSISD has worked with its member districts to make several programs available to students living in the eight member school districts.
