Multilingual Education Services
Welcome to Multilingual Education Services!
The Multilingual Education Services (MES) staff is prepared to serve and assist Wichita PUblic Schools' English Language Learners and their families. The MES Center is the home of several Wichita Public Schools services, including:
  • Newcomer Intake Center
  • Migrant Education Program
  • District Translation Services
  • Language Line

The Newcomer Intake Center is the central point of contact in the Wichita Public Schools for students and families who are new to the district and have a language other than English in their backgrounds. At MES, students' English language skills are tested so that they are placed in the best program for their English proficiency, and parents receive assistance completing enrollment paperwork. MES staff members are also prepared to answer parents' questions about the Wichita Public Schools and provide information about community resources.

Wichita Public Schools' Migrant Education Program (MEP) is a federal program to help migrant children access the same educational opportunities as all other children. Through this program, services above and beyond other local and federal programs are provided to students who qualify so that they can succeed academically. Migrant students are students who have moved across school district boundaries in the past 3 years in order to get work related to agriculture or meat processing. Migrant students are eligible for services from ages 3 through 21.

District Translation Services
include the on-site translation for parents, students and school personnel, written translation for communication with parents, and the Language Line. All translation services are available in Spanish and Vietnamese. Through district staff and community resources, interpretation in many other languages is also available as needed.

Language Line phone numbers are 316-866-8001 (Spanish) and 316-866-8003 (Vietnamese). The Language Line staff is available to assist families and school personnel from 7:30 - 5:00 Monday through Friday.
