MPS rings in new school year
Milwaukee Public Schools "rang in" the traditional school year Tuesday at one of the district’s 14 Commitment Schools, schools identified to be transformed into high-performing schools through rigorous academic interventions, additional district-level supports and flexibility to use innovative approaches to improvement.
The 2014 bell ringing took place at MPS' Thurston Woods Campus, located in the north side's Thurston Woods neighborhood. See more photos here.
To help ensure a successful start to the educational careers of Milwaukee Public Schools’ youngest students, all 3-, 4- and 5-year-old students attending traditional calendar schools will begin the year on a "staggered start." Read more about staggered start.
If you are still looking for a school for the fall, you can begin the enrollment process at http://mpsmke.com/EnrollMPS. You can also stop by MPS' Central Services building Friday, August 29 or visit any MPS school on Tuesday, September 2 to enroll. Enrollment for the fall is open on a first-come, first-served basis.
All MPS students eligible for free, healthy breakfast and lunch
MPS is now among the first school systems in Wisconsin participating in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP), which means that all students at 156 MPS elementary, middle and high schools will be able to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge, regardless of family income.
