District 518 provides our Hispanic community with a superb interpreting and translation service free of charge. The District employs three in-house highly qualified language professionals to take care of the District’s interpreting and translations needs. These professionals are trained in this specific field and they are native speakers. Their English and Spanish skills have been assessed and rated by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Besides providing this service, these professionals assist with enrollment, staff development and cultural awareness issues throughout the District.
A full time interpreter/translator is available at Prairie Elementary, WMS, and WHS. Their aim is to provide an excellent language service not only to Spanish speaking parents and students, but also to ALL District’s 518 staff needing to bridge any linguistic or cultural gap they may encounter.
Please let us know how we can be of service, we look forward to providing our expertise.
