Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for Professional Interpreters in Education - Short Version

This abbreviated version of the Code of Ethics for Professional Interpreters in Education was developed with the input and collaboration of Certified Medical Interpreters, Parent Engagement Facilitators, School Administrators, SeSo, Inc. and University of Georgia Professional Interpreter in Education Certificate course participants.
