Michigan: Pass ASL Interpreter Rules to Raise Standards
The Michigan legislature, in 2007, passed a new law raising the standards for ASL interpreters in Michigan. Now, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) needs to review and approve them before the end of the legislative session, which is June 13th, the last day that both the Michigan Senate and House of Representatives are in session, for sure.

New Deaf Christian School Is Coming
A Deaf education you can depend on! St. Martin Lutheran International School for the Deaf is accepting deaf students now for its 2013-2014 school year. St. Martin is a private residential school for deaf students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The ability to read, write, and understand the English language is crucial for success not only in all academic areas, but also throughout life. St. Martin will not only equip its students to succeed in these areas in a bilingual/bicultural atmosphere, but will do it with a solid Christian foundation as well. You can learn more about St. Martin at the website: www.smlid.org. Or contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 248-980-5741, or 13667 West Highland Road, Hartland, MI 48353.
