If a parent calls an MCPS school or office or walks in and says “I speak [language],” staff can use these step-by-step directions for reaching a Language Line interpreter
Because Language Line is a fee-for-use service, access is restricted to MCPS personnel. We hope staff will become familiar enough with this resource that any parent need only call or come in and say "I speak [Language]," and the staff member answering the phone will immediately call Language Line to obtain an interpreter.
Because some employees have several locations from which they report their hours and each employee can have only one access code, the "Distribution Location" code from your e-paystub is used. This provides an objective source for your location which you can easily access on line if you need to do so. If you are told that your distribution location code is wrong, check your e-paystub. Even employees with a single work location may have a distribution location that is different because of the way their positions are funded.
Employee ID Number: 00000123 Distribution Location: 32239 Language Line personal code: 12339
Language Line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you need to call a parent from home in the evening or early morning, you can call from home. Your personal code will allow us to verify that the call was made by authorized personnel.
