The School District of Philadelphia provides free access to telephonic interpretation only to public schools and District offices. LanguageLine offers interpretation services in 200 languages. This service is not a substitute for an in-person interpreter and we strongly discourage its use for IEP meetings.
Telephonic interpreters can assist you with one-on-one calls, or they can call your party and establish a conference call with families and staff.
For access to telephonic interpretation, call LanguageLine at 1-866-874-3972, provide the School District Client ID # 507454, and the Access Code for your school or office. To obtain your school’s access code, call 215 – 400 – 4180 and select option 4.
