Introducing a new feature: Google Translate

The CHSPE website is currently published in English. For those who speak other languages, we've made it easy to use Google's translation service to translate our information into other languages. To translate the entire CHSPE website, just choose a language from the dropdown menu at the bottom left of the English pages. We hope easy access to this free service is helpful. Because Google Translate is an automated service, content may contain mistranslations of difficult or obscure words and phrases. The Sacramento County Office of Education and the California Department of Education take no responsibility for any mistranslations due to use of the third-party Google Translate function.
