In the spirit of continuing to collaborate with Deaf schools that offer residential programs, our Supervisor of Student Development, Peggy Ann Wenger, decided to think outside the box, especially after the National Student Life of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing conference was postponed until Summer 2023.
She reached out Mr. Oskar Schugg, Supervisor of Residence Programs, at California School for the Deaf, Fremont (CSDF), and they decided to start the Student Life Academy, an event hosted through Zoom.
During the event, they discussed the COVID-19 protocols at TSD. CSDF employees have been working remotely and have not seen their students since March of last year. The CSDF staff was impressed with TSD and how our community has worked through the pandemic.
The event was such a success that Peggy is scheduling more Student Life Academy series with other schools for the Deaf.[Image description: A black and gray laptop displays 20 individuals on a Zoom meeting.
