New Families Center

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.
