• Translation Services Provided by DCPS ESOL Office

    The ESOL office is proud to offer DCPS employees multiple avenues to communicate with parents and families for whom English is not their native language.  Translation services are contracted using federal money, and as such must be dedicated to active or formerly active (LY, LF) ESOL students only. For translations for ESE students, please contact the ESE office.

    Services are available for translating documents and forms, face to face meetings, and emergency phone conferences. 

    Most translation companies charge by the word or by the line.  For this reason, the ESOL office must be very selective in deciding whether or not to provide custom translations.  Schools first priority should be to utilize school based bilingual paraprofessionals, when available

    * All MRT translations are handled by the ESE Department.  http://www.duvalschools.org//Domain/4394
