CA Education Code 48985 requires school districts with 15% or more students who speak one language to translate parental notifications. Eastside Union School District meets this requirement for Spanish and employs a full time district translator/interpreter to ensure high quality translations are provided in a timely manner.
Parents may also request the use of an interpreter for in person or phone conferences through their school site.
Each of our schools employ front office staff who are Spanish speakers order to facilitate effective communication for all families. Additionally, we have added part-time Spanish speaking parent liaisons who are available to assist parents to access services provided by the school.
