We will constantly monitor new students and may deploy additional resources to specific schools as needed.

    Who gets referred to the Temporary Welcome Centers?
    Students new to PPS who qualify for an English language assessment: (i.e. the registration form indicates a language other than English on the section labeled “language information,” also known as the Home Language Survey.

    What services are provided at the centers?
    -Language assessment
    -Assistance with the completion of the registration packet

    Do Not Wait!
    Early assessment will ensure that:
    -We have accurate student counts for funding and staffing
    -Our Emergent Bilinguals get the timely supports and schedules they need

    After the first day of school all IPT Testing will take place at schools.
    Offices will be sent information (i.e., table tent, brochures, links to videos in 5 languages) to support our families with language needs.
    We look forward to supporting you and our families during registration and throughout the year! More information is available on our web page.
