The new Michigan School for the Deaf in Flint, MI is a 80,000-square-foot, 26-classroom building that includes state of the art design and technology. All classrooms, and even some hallways, can accomodate flat-panel TVs and smartboards. Additionally the gym and cafeteria/auditorium feature large projector screens that can display game scores and schoolwide annoucements. All of the screens are connected so that important anoucements can reach all students at once. If necessary, school officials can also send an American Sign Language interpretation to secondary screens. Furniture in classrooms and the media center is organized in a cemi-circle to facilitate signed disscussion.
