Menu of Services

  • We currently have Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Somali and Russian language access specialists on staff. The services of the language access specialists are free of charge during school hours on a first-request-first-serve basis.

    Since demand exceeds the capacity of our full-time specialists, we contract with translation and interpretation services to support the district's needs. These contracts also expand our access, allowing us to request support in hundreds of different languages.

    The costs for these services vary depending on who provides the service and the conditions of the request. Schools / departments are responsible for the cost of their requests (if applicable).
