“This new site allows us to become an even better resource for districts working to reduce language barriers in their schools, said Chanin Ballance, CEO of viaLanguage. “U.S. educators face tough challenges as diversity continues to grow; not only how to effectively communicate with parents in culturally diverse communities, but also how to how to meet federal requirements mandating multilingual communication. Providing a solution to these challenges and improving language access for public schools are at the heart of our mission.”
