Dear SW List Members:
I would like to welcome a new school to our SignWriting Literacy Project.
It is Jordan Vocational High School in Columbus, Georgia. The project will
be spearheaded by teacher Cynthia Frey. Cynthia wrote to me back on
December 15th! Here is the letter:

SignWriting Literacy Project

Dear Valerie:
The teachers of the 9th-12th grade, at the Jordan High School, in the city
of Columbus, Georgia, would like to participate in your SignWriting
Literacy Project. We are part of the Muscogee County School District. Our
school has about 1,000 students in grades 9-12. We have fourteen students
who are deaf or hard of hearing. This is the first year we have offered
American Sign Language (ASL) and this class has included eight hearing

Some of our teachers would like to introduce SignWriting to their students.
These teachers are interested in learning and using SignWriting because of
our struggle for literacy. Our school has 15-30 students who will be
participating in the Literacy Project this year.

We agree, as a group, to complete three Web Reports in return for the
SignWriting materials and technical support you will donate to us. We
understand that this letter and all three reports will become public
information and will be posted to the SignWriting Email List and posted on
the SignWriting Web Site. You have our full permission to use the
information as needed.

Thank you for considering us for your project.


Cynthia Frey
Jordan Vocational High School
