Sign Language Interpreter Services

Description of Services

Educational Interpreters serve as communication links or bridges between students who are deaf/hard of hearing and persons who utilize hearing and speech as their primary mode of communication. Educational Interpreters enable students to access information provided by the interpreter through manual and/or visual communication modes and language systems understood by the student. The information conveyed to a student may involve one or a combination of the following:
  • Actual classroom instruction
  • Classroom discussion
  • Interaction and conversation among teachers or staff
  • Conversation among teachers and peers or other school personnel
  • Directions and other appropriate discourse
  • Media (educational movies, television programs, etc.)
  • Information presented during extra-curricular activities in which a student is involved
  • General or emergency announcements, etc.
  • Any school assemblies, functions, etc.
