All district parents and guardians have the right to participate in their student’s education, including communicating with teachers and staff. The District will take reasonable steps to provide families competent oral interpretation of materials or information about any program, service, and activity and to facilitate any interaction with staff significant to a student's education. The District will provide such service when it might be reasonably anticipated as necessary or upon request by families.

Our District uses the following services to meet the language needs of our community:

  • In-Person and Video Interpretation - In-person and video interpreters are available in several languages. If you need an interpreter, please contact your child's school and ask for an interpreter in your preferred language. 
  • Phone Interpretation -  We have telephone interpreters available in over 200 languages. Call any staff member and ask for an interpreter in your preferred language and they will connect you.
  • Document Translation - Vital documents are professionally translated as needed and requested, subject to language population size and a few days’ notice. If you need a document translated, please contact your child's school.
