Section 504 Grievance Protocol

These procedures were designed to provide an orderly process for the resolution of student and parent/guardian complaints related to the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, which prohibits discrimination against a person with a disability solely on the basis of that disability in programs, activities or employment practices. An equitable resolution of such complaints should be secured at the most immediate administrative level as fairly and expeditiously as possible.  For more information, see the Section 504 Grievance Protocol.

EL Parents and Guardians Language Assistance Services

Language Assistance Services (Translation/Interpretation)

Providing you with accurate and meaningful information regarding your child is very important to us.  Non-qualified interpreters or translators (including students, family members, and friends) may not be used for language assistance except for in emergency situations. Some documents may be interpreted rather than translated.

Free language assistance available upon request.

Para nosotros es muy importante proporcionarle información certera y significativa relacionada con su hijo. Los intérpretes o traductores que no estén calificados (incluso estudiantes, familiares y amigos) posiblemente no estén acostumbrados a brindar asistencia lingüística, salvo para situaciones de emergencia. Es posible que algunos documentos se deban interpretar, en lugar de traducir.

Asistencia gratuita de traducción o interpretación disponible a petición.

Vous fournir des informations précises et significatives concernant votre enfant est très important pour nous. Les interprètes ou traducteurs non qualifiés (y compris les étudiants, les membres de la famille et les amis) ne peuvent pas être utilisés pour l’assistance linguistique, sauf en cas d’urgence. Certains documents peuvent être interprétés plutôt que traduits.

Assistance gratuite en français disponible sur demande.

Việc cung cấp cho quý vị thông tin về con em quý vị một cách chính xác và có ý nghĩa có vai trò rất quan trọng đối với chúng tôi.  Các thông dịch viên hoặc biên phiên dịch viên không có đủ trình độ chuyên môn (bao gồm học sinh, thành viên trong gia đình, và bạn bè) sẽ không được sử dụng để hỗ trợ ngôn ngữ, ngoại trừ trong các trường hợp khẩn cấp. Một số tài liệu sẽ được thông dịch thay vì biên phiên dịch.
