Communicating with Parents who don't speak English
Who can I call if I need an interpreter for parent communication?
For purposes of confidentiality, please use only the people on the master interpreter list provided. Make sure that you complete the google form so that they will receive payment. Interpreters cannot be used for instructional purposes. Interpreters are to be used for oral translation only.
There's an app for that
