Sponsored by Representative Moscoso, HB 1815 requires the development of a model language access policy and procedure for adoption by school districts. At minimum, the policy and procedure must be aligned with federal and state law pertaining to the rights of parents and legal guardians of public school students to language access, must require use of adult language interpreters for school meetings with limited English proficient parents and legal guardians about high-stakes educational situations, and must include a manual of guidelines, best practices, community resources, and interpretation and translation contractual services available in the state.
