Deaf School in Las Vegas Shuts Down
Deaf School in Las Vegas Shuts Down

Listen
AIR DATE: March 14, 2012

The Las Vegas Charter School of the Deaf closed its doors last week.  It was in operation for only three years.  And, board members are 90,000 dollars in debt.  What happened to the school?  Who is responsible for its doors shutting down?  And, what do we lose by not having this sort of school?

What happen to the school? This school was taken over by a group that fired/let go people they didn't like and hired their friends to replace better qualified personnel. I honestly felt discrimated against because I didn't know sign language or was hearing impaired. Who is responsible for it's doors shutting down? I would blame poor money management, over planning, unrealistic numbers. What do we lose by not having this sort of school? My child for one benefited from leaving the LVCSD school and entering public school. My child was test once he enrolled in public school and test early 1st grade, My child was starting the third grade. LVCSD failed my child.
