Support for Families Requiring Sign Language and Emerging Bi-lingual Families
All leaders | Deadline: OngoingBaltimore City Schools serves an incredibly diverse population of students and families. As we strive to meet the needs of students and their families, please remember that we have district resources and protocols to help support our families. As of July 1, 2016 the Baltimore City Public Schools Board approved specific vendors to provide interpretation (Languages Other Than English and American Sign Language) and translation. Only these vendors should be used to provide such services. Please utilize the attached guidelines and request form.
Many schools have bilingual staff to support working with families. When bilingual staff is not available, for brief conversations and calls Baltimore City employees may use CTS Language Link. Please see instructions. Baltimore City employees have access to many translated documents and forms from the TransAct website, www.transact.com.
