The Office of Multilingual Curriculum and Programs (OMCP) works with over 20,000 English Learners who represent more than 130 countries and speak more than 100 home languages.
OMCP oversees the Language Instruction Educational Programs (LIEPs) for English Learners and Dual Language Learners. As part of OMCP, the Multilingual Assessment Center (the MAC) helps multilingual students and families navigate the enrollment process.
In addition to the district-wide compliance guidance, instructional resources, and professional development opportunities that OMCP provides, our Multilingual Managers and Curriculum Development Specialists directly support schools through school visits, PD/coaching, and collaboration with school and network leaders. We also engage in collaborative initiatives throughout the City of Philadelphia in order to best serve our students and families.
