from the Executive Director, Jeffrey S. Bravin
Dear Friends of ASD:
This is a pivotal time for the American School for the Deaf. In April, we celebrate 200 years of deaf education in the United States and ASD’s bicentennial anniversary. While much has changed since our early days, ASD’s dedication to providing a quality education for all deaf and hard of hearing children has remained the same. We continue to explore innovative teaching methods while incorporating state-of-the-art technology into our classrooms. Now in the second year of our three year strategic plan, we are hard at work growing our enrollment, raising our academic rigor, and integrating the American Sign Language/English Bilingual Approach on campus.
With our eyes to the future, we are also completing a comprehensive branding and marketing effort to reposition ASD as the first choice in education for all deaf and hard of hearing students. We have unveiled a new logo, tag line, and credo (see below) for the school that not only captures ASD’s centuries of excellence, but also translates our visions for the future as we embark on our next 200 years.
It is through the generous support of people like you that ASD has served thousands of deaf and hard of hearing children. Thank you for your friendship and commitment to ASD and I hope you will join me in honoring ASD’s legacy during our anniversary year.
Jeffrey S. Bravin
