We Want You Back

You are important and we care about you.

 

What is We Want You Back?

We Want You Back uses a rapid response, strength-based support system for students who were dropped from enrollment for non-attendance in MPS middle and high schools and youth/young adults who left school without a diploma. WWYB strives to create a sense of belonging in MPS and stresses the commitment of MPS to serve all youth. 

What do we do?

WWYB works closely with school support staff to secure the services needed by each youth to attend, engage, and succeed. Our staff reach out to students and families to problem-solve attendance issues, identify the appropriate MPS school for enrolment or confirm enrollment in another district. Outreach is done face to face, by phone, texting, and home visits.  WWYB partners with the student and family to identify obstacles and secure placement in a school that fits the needs of the youth. 

 

If you or someone you know is considering returning to MPS to complete your high school diploma, please call We Want You Back and one of our staff can help you get started. (612) 668-1201.
