Beyond the Words is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides American Sign Language (ASL) Educational Interpreters for school based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When Mt. Diablo Unified School District is not able to fill all open positions with district employees, the use of contract agencies is necessary to ensure that we are in compliance with state and federal law that govern special education. Beyond the Words is a company that is utilized to provide Educational Interpreters to ensure that all of our needed ASL Services are covered for the 2022-2023 school year. Mt. Diablo Unified School District Human Resources and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
