Policy Translation

Policy Code: 4003 Translating Policies for Students and Parents    
The board recognizes that there are many students and parents in the school system for whom English is a second language.  The board further recognizes the importance of communicating the policies of the school system to all students and parents.  As funds permit, to the extent practicable, and as otherwise required by law, the school system will provide translations of pertinent school system information and policies to those students and parents who speak English as a second language. During non-instructional times, staff in the English as a Second Language Department may assist schools in providing such translations.  The superintendent may explore additional options for providing translations or interpretations of student and parent policies.
