The Translation & Interpretation Center provides translation of written documents, both District-wide and specific to individual schools or students, free of charge. While the focus of translation is on the 8 official languages of the District, rare emerging languages, such as Nepali and Burmese, are also translated. Every effort will be made to accommodate any translation request in any language.

Documents that need to be translated can include public announcements, District-wide documents, flyers, forms, and other communications intended for parents and/or students, in addition to transcripts or immunization records for enrollment or student placement.

Please note:
* Before making a request, please check existing Translated Documents.
