Interpretation & Translation

Mountain View Elementary School provides simultaneous interpretation for a community event.

Interpreters (spoken language) and translators (written language) play a vital role in creating partnerships between Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) and our linguistically diverse community. ​The EL Program manages recruitment, hiring​, and training of interpreters and translators. Each year, the Department of Instruction allocates funds to schools for multilingual communication based on the number of linguistically diverse families at each school. Albemarle County also uses a phone-based interpretation system for emergency situations and languages not covered by county-approved interpreters.
