Spring Conferences

Spring conferences are right around the corner – check out these resources to help with planning!

Supporting English Learners

As conferences are approaching, be sure to connect with your language specialist at your school to ensure interpreters are scheduled for your multilingual learners. Here are some tips for working with an interpreter. Conferences with an interpreter typically take longer, so keep that in mind when blocking out time for meeting with multilingual learner families. Also, if you need to translate any documents for conferences, use Linguist Link. For those that might need a refresher, there is a very helpful tab found at the top of the Linguist Link webpage called “How Does It Work?”. From there you will find this video demo, and other helpful information.
