Multilingual Family Support
The School District of Philadelphia speaks your language!
The Multilingual Family Support Unit is comprised of Language Access Coordinators, Community Outreach Liaisons, and school-based Bilingual Counseling Assistants (BCAs), who facilitate cross-cultural communication between students, limited-English proficient families, and District staff by providing culturally relevant and linguistically competent translation and interpretation services.
On these pages, you will find information and resources to support multilingual students and families, such as the Supporting Immigrant and Refugee Students and Families: Toolkit for Administrators, Teachers and Staff.
