Translation & Interpretation Services

The Translation & Interpretation Services team supports communication with Jeffco families in over 100 languages on topics including safety, health, enrollment, student expectations and academic progress. Jeffco offers translation and interpretation services for free to parents and guardians.

Successful two-way communication promotes understanding, partnership, and a sense of belonging among Jeffco families and staff. The relationship between Jeffco staff and families improves student outcomes. This is the “why” behind the team’s work.

The language professionals on the Translation & Interpretation Services team are highly qualified and attend ongoing training to continually improve linguistic skills and knowledge of ethics, standards and best practices for translators and interpreters in education.

Accessing Translation & Interpretation Services

If you are a parent, legal guardian or family member who needs an interpreter or a translation for reasons related to your student’s education, please contact a school staff member or FRST.

Jeffco’s Commitment to Multilingual Families

When students enroll, Jeffco asks about the preferred written and spoken language of families. This is done In accordance with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice. Federal guidelines require school districts to provide information to families in their preferred language to the best of their abilities.

The U.S. Department of Education explains schools’ civil rights obligations to limited English-proficient families. The Limited English Proficiency document provides basic facts for families and staff.
