The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center and the California School for the Deaf, Fremont (CSD) have established a partnership to complete the K-12 American Sign Language (ASL) Content Standards. As part of the development process, feedback was received from groups of participants at the ASL Round Table (ASLRT) in 2014, 2015 and 2016 on the Standards content. Their input helped shape revisions of the standards for grades K-12. These standards are now ready for broader review.
As part of the process to finalize these standards, the Clerc Center has established an open comment period. This is an opportunity for anyone interested to provide feedback regarding the clarity, organization, relevance, and use of the K-12 standards. General comments are also welcome.
The survey is available for viewing until September 27. They standards are able to be viewed with either 1) ASL videos and English text or 2) English text only. No names, e-mail addresses, or other identifying information will be collected. To assure anonymity for survey respondents, responses in ASL also will not be collected.
