House Enrolled Act 1367

During the 2012 general assembly, the legislature directed OMB, in consultation with other state agencies and a diverse group of stakeholders, to develop a transition plan for the creation of a new Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education.  The Center shall carry out its duties in an unbiased manner to ensure that children who are deaf and children who are hard of hearing acquire optimal language skills and academic abilities, regardless of the mode of communication used.
