The Office of Multilingual Curriculum and Programs (OMCP) works with more than 16,500 English Learners who represent more than 130 countries and speak more than 100 home languages.
OMCP oversees curriculum and programming for English Learners and bilingual schools (we currently have six bilingual schools). 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.
In addition, we engage in collaborative initiatives throughout the City of Philadelphia in order to best serve our students and families.
