I received this communication suggestion from Karina Vanderbilt, the Director of Multilingual Services at Puget Sound Educational Service District. Talking Points is one of their vetted resources for successfully communicating with all families despite language barriers. Teachers are swamped and often relying on the one person they know in their building to translate in Spanish for them, or trying to send emails using Google Translate, but FPSD has a multitude of families from diverse backgrounds and languages who are struggling to keep up with remote communication. Talking Points does immediate English-to-target language translation via text, which would allow all teachers and families to connect on a regular basis no matter the language.
