Language Access Plan
The Snoqualmie Valley School District Language Access Plan Plan affirms the district’s strategic plan and belief and value of strong family partnerships. The SVSD Language Access Plan is designed to strengthen family partnerships in ensuring that schools communicate with all parents and guardians in a language they can understand. This includes notifying parents/guardians whose primary language of communication is not English or who have limited proficiency in English - in a language they can understand - about all programs, services, and activities that are called to the attention of other parents and guardians. The Language Access Plan will help ensure that SVSD provides high quality and appropriate language services to parents and guardians. The guide provides the resources staff members need to engage with limited English proficient parents and guardians.
The district must ensure timely, meaningful communication of essential information, including but not limited to information regarding: language assistance programs, safety plans, special education and related services, IEP meetings, grievance procedures, notices of nondiscrimination, student discipline policies and procedures, registration and enrollment, report cards, requests for permission for student participation in district or school activities, parent–teacher conferences, parent handbooks, highly capable programs, magnet and charter schools, and any other school and program choice options.
