The Minneapolis school district is negotiating a contract with the Institute for Student Achievement to lead the hoped-for turn-around of the city's new North High School.
The New York-based nonprofit has worked with districts in Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, New York and Texas, developing new curricula for under-performing high schools that serve more than 20,000 students.
After hearing presentations from three finalists last month, a team of Minneapolis residents and district administrators selected the firm, which intends to hire a north Minneapolis resident to aid in the process.
Officials have not decided where the new North High will be located; it is scheduled to open in 2012.
Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson also extended the deadline, by four weeks, for North High supporters to recruit incoming freshmen to the current school at 1500 James Av. N. The North High Community Coalition now has until the end of April to recruit the 125 students needed to ensure a freshman class in the fall.
In the four months since the board decided to keep the school open, the coalition attracted fewer than 50 students to the school. If the target is not met, district staff will consult with the Institute for Student Achievement to determine how to proceed.

A public meeting is set for Thursday to discuss plans for a new North High in Minneapolis.
Supporters of North High School have issued a set of requests to the Minneapolis school district in hopes of propping up the 122-year-old institution while district leaders make plans for its replacement.
The North High Community Coalition e-mailed letters to school board members urging them, during Tuesday night's meeting, to restate their intent to keep North open and also to abolish the 125-student requirement to retain a freshman class next fall at the school, 1500 James Av. N.
Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson thus far has refused to budge on the freshman enrollment mandate.
Although the board will not vote on the matter Tuesday, the North High group has valid concerns, Board President Jill Davis said.
"We are committed to that high school," Davis said. "We can do better in showing it."
With more than 80 seniors set to graduate from North this year, the lack of a freshman class could speed the school's decline in enrollment, which plummeted to fewer than 280 students last fall.
Fewer students mean fewer class options and possibly fewer parents willing to commit to North in the long term, said Kale Severson, president of the North High Alumni Association.
"It could be do or die," Severson said. "That's how crucial having a freshman class could be."
Despite the struggles to recruit students to the current North, the district is moving forward with plans for a new North, set to open as a 500-student magnet school in fall 2012.
The district has not determined whether the school will be relocated; those discussions, with comments from residents and students, are to begin in several weeks, Superintendent Johnson has said.
A public meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday at North High to hear presentations from three firms bidding to lead the design process.
The group also wants the district to create an attendance zone for North, making it the default high school for neighborhood students. Under current policy, students who live nearby, even across the street from North, attend Edison or Henry high schools unless they specifically choose to enroll at North.
With Principal Birch Jones returning to retirement before the end of the school year, North's supporters also want the search for his replacement to start immediately, with the goal of hiring a new school leader before the end of March.
"It's the right thing to do," Severson said. "This community needs North High School."
