Seven Staff Members Complete “Interpreting for Social Justice” Training

Congratulations to our district’s “Interpreting for Social Justice” participants. Director of English Language and Parent Engagement programs, Dr. Jacqueline Mora, said “Equity and access continues to be one of our district goals and we continue to be excited and energized by the commitment and passion our colleagues have to providing language access to our families. The work of providing language access to our families would not be possible without our collective efforts. We appreciate our continued partnership with Just Communities and the support of our leadership and staff.”
