The month of October has been full of collaborative work. We have been working on the MECDHH/GBSD statutes and collecting feedback from various stakeholders. Meeting with the MECDHH/GBSD school board Legislative Committee finalized our process to arrive at our final draft to present to Representative Pierce on November 1st. This draft will be sent to the legislative reviser’s office for their work before it is sent to the Education Committee for public hearing. The Education Committee will discuss our statutes sometime between January and April 2022. This process has solidified my belief in the work we do and the critical importance of clarity of our role as the leading Deaf Education agency in Maine.
