There are more than 30 languages other than English spoken in the PUSD. Of our many schools 23 meet the 15% requirement that translation and interpretation must be provided.
California Education Code 48985(a) states that:
“If 15 percent or more of the pupils enrolled in a public school that provides instruction in kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive, speak a single primary language other than English, as determined from the census data submitted to the department pursuant to Section 52164 in the preceding year, all notices, reports, statements, or records sent to the parent or guardian of any such pupil by the school or school district shall, in addition to being written in English, be written in the primary language, and may be responded to either in English or the primary language.”
