ESY Services

There has been a change in the location of ESY services for the 18-21- Transition age students. We are again going to have the 18-21 year old students ESY cluster site services located at South High School. Combining locations of our programs to fewer sites will cut down on some of the over-all programming costs such as transportation, nursing etc. and it will allow again for collaboration between the two programs. Attached is the final document of service locations for all of our ESY summer services.

Interpreter Requests for Conferences

Spring Conferences are coming up on February 15 and 16. In order to ensure efficient interpreter coverage, Communications is asking schools to arrange conference schedules and start submitting any required interpreter requests to ARCH Language Services.

Please see the Translation and Interpretation webpage and follow the guidelines and procedures to submit an interpreter request. All requests go directly to ARCH. Schools are encouraged to submit interpreter requests as longer blocks of time rather than as individual appointments when possible.

Requests can be submitted from now until Friday, February 9, 2018 for guaranteed coverage. Schools that submit their interpreter requests during this time will receive their confirmations by the end of Monday, February 12, 2018, including appointment date, time, location details and interpreter names.

Any interpreter requests received after the deadline (Friday, February 9, 2018) will not be guaranteed coverage. If any school has any questions or needs further assistance, please contact ARCH directly at 651-789-7897 or the Translation and Interpretation Office at 612-668-1830.
