  • 1.  Interpreting Services in school

    Posted 12-12-2022 21:40
    Good Evening,

    I am wondering if there are any school districts that uses any interpreting services for students? Recently there have been several Spanish speaking students start in our district. We do not have a staff member that is fluent in Spanish and I am have a hard time talking to Spanish speaking families over the phone. We have a small district on 260 kids and not many resources. I am wondering if there are any recommendations for services to look into. 

    Thank you,

    Our district uses Green Linguistics. You call the number and have a personal code to punch in. They have Spanish and other languages. We have students from Afghanistan and they are able to accommodate the language they speak. I don't know the ins and outs with obtaining that service though.
    Good luck!
