Gallaudet’s Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center announces a request for proposals for the development of American Sign Language (ASL) content standards for kindergarten through 12th grade.

Nationally, states have established standards and benchmarks for what students should know and be able to demonstrate in academic subject areas, including English and some foreign languages. However, formal standards and benchmarks have not yet been established for ASL learning for K-12 students.

The Clerc Center is initiating the essential process of developing such standards. Proposals are due by November 15, and a grant will be awarded by January 30.

Read more about ASL content standards, view a vlog about the project, and find out how to submit a proposal on the Clerc Center website.
