Setting the standard for English Learner education.
In 2011 The MPS Board of Education passed a resolution stating that an English Learner task force would be established in order to address the diverse and growing needs of English Learners in MPS.
The findings and recommendations would then be reported to the Board of Education and the Superintendent. As a result, the EL Commission was formed in order to evaluate current and future practices in EL education in MPS, and to develop a comprehensive plan for the district’s education of all English Learners.
