Interpreter / Translation Services
The district is required to provide written translations in languages that are represented
by 15% or more of the district English learner (EL) population. A school is required to
provide translations for all languages that are represented at the school by 15% or more
of the EL students.
Currently, in our district, the only language that is 15% or more is Spanish. The RAP
Center has one Bilingual Assessment Registration Technician who can interpret in
Mien. With enough advance notice given to available interpreters in Tagalog, Punjabi,
Vietnamese, Mandarin, Arabic, Lao, Khmu, Hindi, Japanese, Urdu, Portuguese can be
interpreted and translated as well.
The RAP Center maintains a listing of interested people to translate or interpret in these
and several other languages. Consult with Chris Pharn for requests for names of
people to do school translations or interpreting. Interpretation services for the
languages French and Cantonese are only available from CLI Services (Telephone
interpreting) for now.
