The Translation and Interpretation Unit also provides translation of written materials to schools at the request of principals. Examples of written materials translated for schools include letters, school handbooks, meeting notices, school calendars, and school newsletters. The Unit also provides one-to-one, over the phone interpretation services to schools. These services facilitate conversations between parents and school staff members.
Non-English speaking parents have a right to request interpretation services and schools must honor the request by phoning the Translation and Interpretation Unit hotline, which is accessible only to schools and internal DOE offices.
