Dallas-area CityFront Innovations, the leader in AI technology for mobile city applications, is proud to have been selected to provide language interpretation services to the Northwest Independent School District (NISD).

In addition to NISD, School Districts that are members of the Educational Purchasing Cooperative of North Texas (EPCNT) and other local public entities can invoke the shared contract awarded under NISD Bid Number: 020-022-05-028 Addendum 2 to make procurement easy, benefiting from the negotiated contract and terms.

The NISD is one of the fastest growing school districts in the state, serving 14 communities in parts of three counties. The district operates 30 campuses and several support facilities that help NISD fulfill its mission to engage in a culture of learning that prepares all students to confidently navigate their future in collaboration with students, families and partners.

To fulfill its goal of providing students with personalized learning opportunities, the NISD will be using CityFront Engage to provide language interpretation services to students whose native language is not English.

CityFront Engage is a language interpretation service that delivers live video or voice interpretation of over 220 language via a simple to use mobile app.

“CityFront is proud to partner with NISD to provide this important service,” said Steve Denney, Co-Founder and CTO of CityFront Innovations. “Community building is central to both emotional and economic well-being, and language is the driver of community.”

Part of the CityFront Experience city mobile app, CityFront Engage can be deployed as a stand-alone module and can be implemented quickly. Users can access CityFront Engage via any device to be connected quickly with a live interpreter in over 220 languages, including American Sign Language (ASL).

Right now, schools and other organizations are looking for ways to improve communication with their students more efficiently, “CityFront Engage can be a big help and be up and running quickly.”

“Northwest ISD is excited to partner with CityFront to provide a secure and easy way to use its virtual interpretation system to communicate with our families who do not speak English,” said Carri Eddy, Executive Director of Student Services. “We feel this will be a valuable resource as we support all of our students and families through 504, ARD, LPAC and discipline meetings.”
