District Translation Services

Lamar Consolidated Independent School district offers Spanish language translation through the Accelerated Language Program Department. Lamar CISD serves 22,881 students who speak 52 languages. Spanish is the most common language in our district after English. With the population of Hispanic students in our School District increasing exponentially year after year, the need to communicate with their parents becomes more and more self-evident. We all know how valuable the involvement of parents and community leaders can be in our schools. When our students see their parents interested in coming to school, helping with PTO activities, asking how they are doing academically, it helps them to see the importance of their education. Communication is an important key to parental involvement. By using this service, you will be giving the Spanish-speaking community the same standards of quality in your written communications as you already provide their English-speaking counterparts. This reflects well on the educational institution we represent.

"When translating one must proceed up to the untranslatable; only then one becomes aware of the foreign nation and the foreign tongue." - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
