Washington State Institute for Public Policy
January 2007
The 2006 Washington State Legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (Institute) to “hire a meeting facilitator to conduct a series of meetings with a broad group of stakeholders to examine the strengths and weaknesses of educational services available to deaf and hard of hearing children throughout the state.” The legislation further directed the Institute to “develop recommendations that would establish an integrated system of instructional and support programs that would provide deaf and hard of hearing children with the knowledge and skills necessary for them to be successful in their adult lives and the ‘hearing’ world of work.”

This preliminary report summarizes views from stakeholder meetings, focus groups, and interviews conducted between September and December 2006. Stakeholder consultations will continue through March 2007. A final report with recommendations is due June 2007.
