Language Access

As the parent/guardian of a District student, you have the right to participate in your 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:

  • District Spanish Line 425-431-1304 - Línea en español para las familias y estudiantes
  • In-Person Interpretation - In-person interpreters are available in several languages, subject to scheduling and availability. Equipment for simultaneous interpretation via headsets are also available.
  • Phone Interpretation - A phone service “Language LINK” provides on-the-spot interpretation in over 200 languages within 30 seconds. Call any staff member and ask for interpretation in your preferred language and they will connect you.
  • Written Translation - Vital documents are professionally translated as needed and requested, subject to language population size and a few days’ notice.
  • Online Translation - A Google Translate tool instantly translates websites to over 100 languages.
