Over the Phone Interpretation (Language Line)
The DOE offers free access to over-the-phone interpretation services in over 200 languages so staff can communicate with Pre-K for All families who speak a language other than English. The service is provided by Language Line.
You can use Language Line in three ways:
when a parent/guardian comes to your school/program
when you call a parent/guardian
when a parent/guardian calls you
Follow these four simple steps and a trained interpreter will assist you in communicating with your families:
Provide your client ID
Indicate the language you need translated
Provide your program’s zip code
