Parents have the right to translation and interpretation from an individual who has been certified as bilingual.
Bilingual Skills Certification
OKCPS has a Bilingual Skills Test, which all incoming bilingual paraprofessionals must take and pass before being hired. Any staff member in the building may also take the training and exam to become a certified translator and/or interpreter.
- Certified translator - can translate documents
- Certified interpreter - can provide verbal translation
Contact the Communications Department to find out who in your building is already certified or for information about taking the test.
IEP/504 translations may be requested through the Special Services department/website.
School Document Translations
Please request site-level translations from OKCPS-certified bilingual translators at your site.
Can I just put it into Google Translate?
Unfortunately, language is not so simple that it can be accurately translated via computer. Please don't translate more than a single word or phrase via online tools.
