PROJECT: Seattle Public Schools
The administration and teachers of Seattle Public Schools believe that teaching and learning are truly enriched by the diversity of its students and staff. Their goal is to provide a range of services that assist bilingual students and their families to feel welcome at school and support students’ academic success.
The district’s bilingual program services department offers English language programs, bilingual instructional assistance to students with limited English proficiency, and assistance with referrals to health care, employment, and legal services.
This multilingual team also supports students’ families by enrolling their children in an appropriate educational program and informing parents about school policies, enrollment, school transportation, transcripts, testing, and many other school activities.
Thanks to the generous partnership of the Seattle Council Parent Teacher Student Association, Seattle Public Schools was able to purchase a ListenRF system.
Listen Technologies worked to create a custom system to meet Seattle Public School’s needs. Multiple LT-700 Portable Display RF Transmitters with 57-channels are used by the interpreters and allow for more than one language to be interpreted at every meeting. Attendees in need of language interpretation services use the LR-400 Portable Display RF Receivers.SYSTEM COMPONENTS
