Interpreting and Translation Services

  • Interpretor

     

    Special Education team meetings depend on good communication among all team members including families, students, and school personnel. When family/students’ home/native language is not English, the Special Education Office will include interpreters to ensure that parents are fully participating in the team decision making process. The Office of Special Populations provides oral interpretation to all non-English-speaking families who have students with special needs. The Special Populations Office also provides written translation in Spanish and makes a good faith effort to accommodate other foreign languages for translation services, whenever possible. In recognition of the need for meaningful participation for non-or limited English-speaking parent(s)/guardian at Individual Education Plan team meeting, the Division of Special Education has hired its own interpreter/translator/language coordinator, Gabriela Rolon, to provide and help coordinate oral interpretation at Individual Education Plan and special education meetings and to translate documents in order to provide the most accurate information to our non-Englilsh speaking parents.
