• Language Assistance Services

    The Office of Outreach Services provides families the opportunity to be engaged with Loudoun County Public Schools regardless of the language spoken through interpretation and translation services. The mission of Language Assistance Services is to provide accurate and timely communication with families with limited English proficiency (LEP) and ensure compliance with federal and state laws and the Office for Civil Rights. Additionally, Language Assistance Services promotes alignment and consistency across all schools and departments by recruiting and retaining quality interpreters and translators. If a parent requests interpretation or translation services, it must be provided.
