The subcommittee also heard from Lynn Boyer, who has been superintendent of the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind since July 1.
"We are on a new journey. We are moving forward. - Supt. Lynn Boyer "We are on a new journey," she said. "We are moving forward." By that, Boyer said, she meant that the schools are going back to their "fundamental roots. She said half of the students are residential and the other half are day students. They don't see themselves are disabled, she said. Boyer said the deaf students don't get involved much in cued speech or auditory-verbal methods. Instead, their primary means of communication is American Sign Language, she said. "We are beginning to face this notion that we are the placement of last resort," Boyer said. The schools should be considered the "placement of choice" at points along students' journey to becoming adults who have hearing or vision disabilities, she said. Boyer also wants to attract teachers from across the state to the campus in Romney to enrich their teaching skills. "We are establishing on campus a center for best practices," she said. Her administration is developing a five-year strategic plan for the schools, she said.

II. Welcome - West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind Highlights- Lynn Boyer, Superintendent

WVSDB Superintendent Lynn Boyer said she has met with the caretakers and local teachers union several times to talk about compromises such as providing more time for them to obtain the degree but said that, after researching deaf and blind institutions in surrounding states, requiring degrees is the best move.
In all cases, the differentiation between the school and the home was not there. It was very much a seamless set of expectations. So that gave us some confidence that we were, in fact, on the right path, Boyer said. I fully expect that many familiar faces will be with [the students] in August. It is not our intention to do away with jobs or people, but to increase the quality of teachers and provide support to do that. The controversy over the new degree requirement is not the only issue the WVSDB has struggled with recently. While Boyer has pushed for new facilities and more funding for renovations, it continues to be unclear which state entity is financially obligated to the school.
