Published: January 13th, 2020

Special Education Directors,

To address the shortage of qualified teachers of the deaf (TOD) and teachers of students with visual impairments (TVI), the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (ASDB) is asking Arizona educators to take this survey.  The purpose of this survey is to identify the impact of the shortage, identify possible solutions to the shortage, and to gain the thoughts and opinions of Arizona LEAs and institutes of higher education on the specific knowledge and skills needed to adequately prepare teachers to work with students with these types of needs.

Please review and provide feedback by the end of the day on Friday, January 24, 2020.
