Translation and Interpretation

Parents play an essential role in developing a child’s Individualized Education Program. Under the Illinois Administrative Code, all parents/guardians of students with disabilities eligible for an IEP have a right to have an interpreter provided by the school district. A parent may also request the interpreter serve no other role in the meeting. 

Additionally, to ensure meaningful participation, parents may IEP documents translated into their native language, including: 

  • IEP documents
  • Parent/Guardian Notification of Conference and Conference Recommendations
  • Notice of Procedural Safeguards for Parents/Guardians of Students with Disabilities
  • Parent/Guardian Consent for Initial Evaluation Reevaluation
  • Evaluation Reports
  • Eligibility Determination
  • Manifestation Determination Review Documents
  • IEP Progress Reports
  •  Medicaid Consent Forms

If you would like to request an interpreter, have the above documents translated into your native language, or receive a translation that you find inadequate, please contact your child’s case manager.
