Language Access

In addition to English and Spanish, many families speak other languages. Every family should know they are important members of your community. Use the resources that are available to you to ensure they are included.

  • Ask your school or district if they have translators available for virtual school. Advocate with other teachers and with families for access to vital translation services.
  • Use apps or programs to translate your messages such as Remind or Talking Points.
  • Find others in your school community who are bi- or multilingual who can help you communicate.
