South Washington County Schools arranges on-site interpreters for parent-teacher conferences and other significant events. For day-to-day communications, we have subscribed to telephone interpreting services from LanguageLine. LanguageLine provides professional interpreters within seconds for more than 170 languages. It can be used for calls coming into the school from student families or calls going out of the school. There is no cost to families for this service.

If you would like to use an interpreter to communicate with a school, please call the school's main office and tell them you need Language Line and the name of the language you require. They will return your call with an interpreter within a few minutes.

Classroom teachers should contact their school's EL teacher for information on how to easily place Language Line calls.
