Designate a Language Access Coordinator
Start Date: 9/22/2017
End Date: 9/22/2017
Event Description:
You must designate a staff member to serve as your school's Language Access Coordinator (LAC) in order to support Limited-English Proficient (LEP) parents. You must designate your LAC in Galaxy by September 22; see here for detailed instructions.

When designating, or re-designating a LAC for your school, please ensure your designee meets the following criteria. S/he must be:

  • A full-time staff member, who can turnkey/present information to other staff
  • Non-pedagogue who frequently engages with parents (including LEP parents)
  • Familiar with your school's communication strategy for reaching out to parents (both in correspondence and school events)
  • Familiar with the language needs of your school's parent population
  • Available to attend a 3-hour initial training session this fall, as well as additional trainings in subsequent years. Note that your existing LAC(s) will be invited to a refresher training session.
  • These training sessions will ensure that your school's LAC is prepared to support you in monitoring parent language needs, is familiar with the existing language access resources available in the DOE, can provide you with guidance on how to best allocate funding to provide language assistance, and is proactive in informing LEP parents of the availability of language assistance services.

You are encouraged to designate more than one LAC in Galaxy. This may be especially helpful when there is a large student and LEP population present in your school. If you have multiple sites (e.g., pre-K centers), you should designate a LAC for each site.

For more information, contact your district's field language access coordinator or email translations@schools.nyc.gov or call 718-752-7373.
