The Las Vegas Charter School for the Deaf opened on August 25 with two students. While that might not sound like an impressive achievement, it represents the culmination of a decade worth of work and planning by members of Nevada's Deaf community and allies, struggles, setbacks, and sheer determination to succeed. Nevada, which is one of the few states that never established a school for the deaf, now has a Bilingual ASL/English charter school. LVCSD hopes to increase enrollment and expand to a full K-12 curriculum.
