EAST RAMAPO TO ISSUE RFP FOR TRANSLATION SERVICES

The East Ramapo Central School District today announced that it would issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to supply the district with translation services for its board meetings and other public events.

“We surveyed school districts statewide to determine best policies and practices. While there aren’t a lot of school districts that provide translation at board meetings, among those that do, it appears that private translation companies seem to offer the best and most cost-effective service,” said Yehuda Weissmandl, President of the School Board.

Weissmandl said that the private translation companies have experienced personnel and specific technology that could ensure good communication at public meetings. He said contracting with such companies makes sense because the cost of duplicating the same level of objective, high-quality translation service internally would be prohibitive for the district.
He said the district has appealed to Senator David Carlucci and Assembly Members Ellen Jaffee and Kenneth Zebrowski for financial support to cover the cost of the service.

“Knowing our legislative delegation’s strong interest in promoting better community relations, our hope and expectation is that members will provide a legislative grant to help cover the cost of translation services,” he said.
The RFP, which is being finalized, would be for real-time translation of board meetings and other events into multiple languages using earphones and other technology. The goal is to enable and encourage non-English speaking district residents to follow board activities and also to express their views at board meetings.

Pending final board approval tonight, the RFP will be issued promptly. The board will review proposals, award the contract and initiate the service as soon as possible.
