SD Schools Applauded For Deaf Education Work

October 13, 2011, 6:48 AM

VERMILLION, SD - Two South Dakota school districts have been honored for their pioneering work with deaf students.
 
The South Dakota Board of Regents adopted resolutions during their meeting Wednesday commending the Brandon Valley and Harrisburg school districts for their efforts to educate children with hearing impairments.

Since 2009, the Brandon Valley School District has operated an oral education program that serves students enrolled at the South Dakota School for the Deaf. Harrisburg has operated an educational program for bilingual and bicultural students since 2010.

The schools began offering the programs after a state task force in 2008 determined the educational needs of hearing impaired and deaf students could not be met due to very low enrollments at the School for the Deaf campus in Sioux Falls.
