CPS is taking immediate steps to provide Spanish language translations of materials on its website by weeks end. After a parent raised the fact that Spanish language materials are not available on the CPS website during Mayor Emanuels Facebook education townhall, the Mayor directed CPS CEO Jean-Claude Brizard to take immediate steps to provide Spanish language materials on its website.

 

CPS is committed to providing all parents with the tools they need to access critical information about their childrens education, said CPS CEO Jean-Claude Brizard. One key portal of information available today is our website. After last nights Facebook Education townhall hosted by Mayor Emanuel, it became clear that we are falling short of providing all of our parents with the information our website provides. We will have Spanish language translation capability on our website before the end of the week and look forward to receiving feedback from the community about their experience with this new technology.
