The Multilingual Learner Services team in San Mateo-Foster City School District  provides training and support to school sites in identifying, assessing, and monitoring the language and academic progress of Multilingual Learners. Our multilingual students speak more than 50 different languages and come from many countries around the world.

Our vision: 

The Multilingual Learner Services team in SMFCSD welcomes multilingual students and creates equitable systems that support students’ academic and social-emotional success by partnering with all stakeholders, promoting a sense of belonging and engaging in culturally responsive and asset-based  instruction  so that students can reach their full potential.
