Community Interpreters (oral)

Requests for oral interpreters are processed through the Consolidated Programs Department.  The district interviews and screens persons who are fluent in both the target language and English.  Community interpreters are booked on an "as needed" basis when school sites/departments request assistance.  Persons interested in being part of  the community interpreters pool must apply through available through the district's website (standard requirements to perform duties involving students of the PBVUSD district include background check - fingerprinting - and TB test; other requirements are listed online).

Interpreters are available in a variety of languages to assist teachers and other school staff in communicating with parents about school-related issues, attending meetings/trainings at the school site and district, parent/teacher and behavioral conferences, and special education matters.
