School Districts Sued for Lacking Language Services

Translation services are indispensable for multiracial schools, especially for pupils and parents who cannot converse well in English. Language barriers inconvenience pupils from achieving their best results in their academic endeavors and also prevent parents from participating in their children’s studies. That being said, schools have the responsibility to employ professional translation services to fill the gap in providing quality and fast translations.

Some schools have been involved in lawsuits after parents complained about their failure in providing adequate translation services. This could have been avoided by extra consideration for those families and in some states abiding by the legal requirements that schools should accommodate parents and pupils whose English is not their primary language.

What many don’t know is that it’s relatively easy to address the needs of these students and their families.  Many schools are already doing it and they have found that it only takes some extra planning to allow the time for the translation to be made or for an interpreter to be included in the meetings.  Compared to the value it offers the family and how much it helps the student, it’s one of the easiest ways to accommodate them…..and avoid a lawsuit.
