In June and July, the district will send enrollment buses throughout the city to enroll children for the 2018-19 school year. Milwaukee families will be able to learn about the quality educational options for their children and enroll students from the comfort and convenience of their own neighborhood.
Dr. Keith P. Posley, Interim Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools, has set Five Priorities for Success to help every child in MPS reach his or her fullest potential; to engage staff, parents, and the community; and to ensure fiscal responsibility and transparency. Your voice is important and your thoughts and ideas are valuable as we work together to improve outcomes for all of our students.
Please take a moment to answer a few questions that will help us as we move forward. Select the group that best matches your connection to MPS and answer the questions.
Thank you for your assistance as we create opportunities for every child in Milwaukee Public Schools to be successful.

The Youth Apprenticeship and Internship Job Board lists all of the current openings available to MPS students. The Youth Apprenticeship program provides MPS high school juniors and seniors with paid, hands-on, work-based learning in high skill/high need industries so students are better prepared for the careers of tomorrow. The internship program provides an opportunity for students to work for an employer for a specific period of time to learn about a particular industry or occupation.
South Division High School nurse Sue Waldoch says she works to eliminate barriers to students’ education. “If a child has any type of medical need that would potentially make them stay at home, because I’m here, they’re able to be in school.”
