 In addition, we have produced a limited number of magnets for each of the 9 language websites to help you disseminating this important information among the multilingual audience you are serving.  To request these magnets, please click HERE.

> LANGUAGE HOTLINES

 
The School District of Philadelphia maintains hotlines in 8 major languages and is in the process of adding 15 more so that students and parents who have difficulty speaking English can communicate problems and concerns in their own languages.

Callers for individual languages reach a voice mail box where they can leave a message in their language with contact information and a short description of the question or situation of concern. Someone speaking their language will return their call t

o help resolve the problem or to provide the information they request.
