Language Links

What is Language Links?

To ensure effective communication and engagement with our Limited English Proficient (LEP) parents SAISD now provides language support to assist in the communication of academic information between schools and parents to increase engagement in school activities and district-wide functions. This internal resource provides written translation, on-site interpretation, and over-the-phone interpretation services to our SAISD families district-wide. Interpretation and Translation services will be offered to our families to help in SAISD's mission of providing a complete educational experience to prepare them for success beyond graduation.
