Students from NDSD Transition to a New School

Since August, students at the North Dakota School for the Deaf have been attending Devils Lake High School. Officials with both schools say although there are many challenges, it's been a positive experience.

Since August, students at the North Dakota School for the Deaf have been attending Devils Lake High School.

Officials with both schools say although there are many challenges, it's been a positive experience.

The students say they enjoy many things..but the experiences and opportunities were also at the top of their lists.

School officials say the partnership between the North Dakota School for the Deaf and Devils Lake Public Schools has worked well for everyone involved.

Many of the students are offered classes they would not be otherwise had they just been at NDSD.

Interpreters and Teachers of the Deaf go with students to classes to make sure they understand the teachers and assignments they are given.

Carmen Suminski says that with all changes, come challenges.

"We want to make sure that the students enrolled here have as many opportunities as possible," explained Suminski.

There are also students in the middle school as well as the elementary schools throughout the Devils Lake School District.
