Interpretation and Translation
Our district is committed to providing all parents access to their student’s education regardless of their home language. Using information provided by parents during the registration process we identify the
most appropriate language for home communications.
Based on the number of Spanish speaking and Russian and Ukrainian speaking families in our district, we employ bilingual community liaisons to facilitate two-way communication and active engagement. In addition, we access telephonic language interpretation and schedule outside interpreters as needed to support families from all language backgrounds.
To the right is a list of our Spanish speaking liaisons, their contact information, and the schools they support.
La lista a la derecha muestra los nombres, correos electronicos y números de teléfono de los enlaces comunitarios quienes hablan Español y las escuelas que cada enlace apoya.
Communication Support in Other Languages
Our schools and district offices utilize telephonic interpretation and can also make arrangements for in person interpretation in other languages. Please contact your student's school if you need interpretation support in another language.
