About Us

As a district serving a diverse, multicultural population speaking dozens of languages, the Jefferson Parish Public School System is committed to ensuring that all students, including English language learners, will have full access to the educational and career/technical preparation programs offered by the district. The Translation Services Department provides free written translations and oral interpretation services in Arabic, Spanish, and Vietnamese to help support English language learners attending JPPSS schools and their families. Translation services are also available for other languages on an as-needed basis.

Services include, but are not limited to, written translations and interpretations at school meetings and events; interpretation for special needs students (i.e. ARD meetings); and electronic copies of previously interpreted parish-wide and school-level documents. For more information, please contact luisa.penton@jppss.k12.la.us
