Translation Services

PWCS offers free language assistance to parents. We provide access to professional interpreters, to help our families understand important information about their child's education. We also provide translations of many of our important documents and information.

How Can Families Get Language Assistance?

In Person

When visiting your child's school or one of our central registration sites, you can ask for an interpreter that speaks your language. You can also point to your language using one of our Assistance in Any Language posters. Our staff will immediately have an interpreter on the phone to help you. Face-to-face interpreters, for most languages, can also be obtained with prior notice.

Over The Phone

Call one of our bilingual translators if you have any questions about how to get translation or interpretation services:

Many of our documents and information are available in Arabic, Chinese, Dari-Farsi, Korean, Pashto, Spanish, Urdu, and Vietnamese. You can also use the "Auto Translate" option to see a translation of our website. Computerized translations are often imperfect, but can help familiarize you with information not yet translated by the school division.
