Statewide Leadership:
Access to the General Curriculum for Students Who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
Access to the General Curiculum (AGC)

Through the ESC State Leadership Project, ESC-20 provides professional development and technical assistance to the statewide ESC Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ESC DHH) contacts as they assist school districts with the development and implementation of comprehensive instructional programs that are standards-based and results-driven. Through collaboration with the statewide Access to the General Curriculum Network, the ESC DHH contacts help local programs meet the unique needs of students who are deaf or hard of hearing across the continuum of placement options.

Project Share Resources: 

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is proud to announce a new initiative that will explore the development and delivery of high quality professional development in an interactive and engaging learning environment. Project Share utilizes a collection of Web 2.0 tools and applications to provide professional development resources for teachers across the state and build professional learning communities where educators can collaborate and participate in online learning opportunities.

Project Share provides opportunities to network with colleagues, access online professional development, and share resources. In order to encourage participation in this project, please begin using the link to my page in Project Share (http://www.epsilen.com/johnbond) to access the most recent information and resources related to access to the general curriculum for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. As the statewide leadership develops online content, it will be available on this website.
