  • Our Mission

  • The Office of Translation & Interpretation provides language support to assist in the communication of academic information between schools and parents to increase engagement in school activities and district-wide functions. This full range of language services are designed to help in CCSD's mission of providing a comprehensive educational experience to prepare our students for college, career, and life. 

    We offer a variety of translation & interpretation services that ensure meaningful language access for students and parents so they may have an active role in the student’s education. 

    For support with meetings related to IEPs and 504s, please contact the Department of Exceptional Children at (843) 937-6500. 

    Our Services

    • Interpretation (Oral): For district-wide and school-wide functions, we offer oral consecutive or simultaneous interpretation services into Spanish with the ability to provide services into other languages for district-wide events.
       
    • Translation (Written): We offer translation services of a wide variety of documents into Spanish through our in-house staff. Translations are also available. Documents submitted for translation will be processed in the order received and the typical turn-around time is within 20 days although this may vary due to availability, the complexity of the document, and length.
       
    • Over-the-phone Interpretation (OPI): OPI services are available in more than 240 languages through an over-the-phone interpreting service for simple matters not requiring an in-person interpreter. The service is available to anyone with CCSD credentials. Please contact our office at languagerequests@charleston.k12.sc.us for important information about this service.
