Engaging Families of English Learners
We know that involving parents and families in a child's education results in greater student achievement. To this end, Family Outreach Specialists work with school sites and the larger community, offering meaningful opportunities for EL families to learn about EL services in MPS, while connecting them to valuable academic resources.
Language-specific presentations engage families in their native language and help bridge the gap between families who may not speak English, and the larger school community. Presentations are available in Spanish and Somali.
