Friday, Dec. 8, is an Early Dismissal Day for all students. This is to allow report card preparation for elementary teachers and professional development for secondary teachers.
There has been some confusion as the schools’ online calendar correctly has Dec. 8 as an Early Dismissal Day but the printed calendar does not. DCPS has apologized for that error.
$19.5M to School for the Deaf
The Maryland Department of General Services on Wednesday announced the award of $19.5 million in funding to support construction services to the renovation of the Veditz Vocational Building at the Maryland School of the Deaf in Frederick.
The Veditz Building, originally constructed in 1975, provides vocational training to deaf students. Since the construction of the building, significant advancements in technology have been made and the educational needs of the school have also evolved.
The renovation will configure the 48,313 square foot space into state-of-the-art multi-purpose classrooms and career technology education classrooms based on the design principles of DeafSpace: sensory reach, space and proximity, mobility and proximity, light and color, and acoustics.
The project will equip the building with modern technology to support the educational classes offered by the Maryland School of the Deaf. The Veditz Building offers classes in American Sign Language, home economics, computer technology, graphic design, introduction to engineering, robotics, art, woodworking, and drama/video production. In addition, the building offers a job training center.
