Parents and students in Montgomery County who speak Spanish will now have access to their school’s news via Twitter.

The handle @MCPSEspanol was launched yesterday by the school district’s leaders.  

Montgomery County’s Hispanic population is growing, according to census data. The new feed is designed to improve communication with the community.

“MCPSEspanol will allow us to better engage our Spanish-speaking families as we seek to improve community engagement across the district," Superintendent of Schools Joshua P. Starr said. 

The school district’s central Twitter account @MCPS has more than 7,500 followers.

“As our district continues to grow and change, we must change the way we communicate with and empower our families,” said Dr. Starr.
