Source Link - Construction Of Del. School For Deaf Begins

Delaware School for the Deaf director Della Thomas says an 18-month project to build the school has begun.

Thomas says the project has started and stopped several times as funding for the Newark-area school was arranged. Ground was broken Tuesday for the $43 million project paid for by the state. The new building will replace an outdated facility currently used to educate 129 students.

The school will have interactive whiteboards, technology to work with cochlear implants, amplification systems, video conferencing and other distance learning features.
