4003 - Translating Policies for Students and Parents ## Translating Policies ## For Students And Parents

The Avery County Board of Education recognizes that there are many students and parents in the school system whose primary language is not English. The board further recognizes the importance of communicating the policies of the school system to all students and parents. As funds permit, to the extent practicable, and as otherwise required by law, the school system will provide translations of pertinent school system information and policies to those students and parents whose primary language is not English. During non-instructional times, staff in the English Learners Services Department may assist schools in providing such translations. The superintendent may explore additional options for providing translations or interpretations of student and parent policies.
