Subject: 10.19 (Item 19) Adjust existing contract between Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) and Advanced Interpreting Services for the 2010-2011 school year.
LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) Goal:
File Attachment:
Summary: Due to the lack of District foreign language interpreters, it is necessary to hire contract interpreters. Advanced Interpreting Services will provide foreign language interpreters on an on-call basis to act as interpreters for non-English speaking parents to access educational programs and activities, and for assessment of limited English speaking students. They will also provide translation of correspondence to parents in cases of suspension or expulsion as well as translation of the annual Parent Information Packet.

Contract interpreters will provide services under the supervision of a certificated employee of MDUSD at all times. Based on past history and the increasing diversity within the community, this will be an ongoing, predictable expense.

We have a contract of $20,000.00 which we have almost exhausted. We need to increase the contract to $75,000 to cover services for the rest of the school year.
Funding: $25,000.00 Program Code 5045
$50,000.00 Program Code 1300
Fiscal Impact Fiscal impact is $75,000 and is already budgeted in the 2010-2011 budget.
Recommendation: Approve amendment to contract as presented.
