New Families Center

NOTICE: We have returned to our normal location at Wilder school, 3345 Chicago Ave. 

Thank you for your patience during construction, we apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to serving you at the NFC!

The New Families Center primarily assists families who have a home language other than English.

Every child who enrolls for the first time in MPS is given a Home Language Questionnaire. If the parent notes that the family speaks a language other than English at home, first spoke a language other than English, or hears another language regularly at home, we will assess the child’s English language proficiency with a screening test. If the results of this test show that the child qualifies for English Learner (EL) services, he/she will be recommended to a school that has ESL teachers and can provide those services.
