Do you need an Interpreter?
CMS does not have its own interpreter as of now (budget cuts from the district level). If you have a more immediate need for an interpreter, please call Trisha Malmutt at 704-262-6135. If you can make an interpreter request for 7-10 days from the request, such as a planned parent conference or questionnaire, you can go to the C/I website, ESL, interpreter request. Spanish speaking adults in our building should not be asked to interpret unless it's an extremely urgent matter, and if that occurs, the request must go through an administrator. We would love to have an interpreter, and we are working on this!
