I think we have to do it.... I thought he always brought his own?  But, not 
sure we have a choice.....  If he's not bringing his own, we're going to have 
to hire them.  It concerns me a bit that if there is only one in Savannah 
through this organization, we may end up having to pay some travel expenses, 
too.  Since we're a non-profit, I would think we would have to comply with ADA.

I'm passing this on because I don't know if it is a requirement for us or not.

To all conference co-chairpersons,

I have registered yesterday to attend the GSIS conference in Savannah, GA. Some 
of you might know me well as I am deaf and have participated in PowerSchool 
sessions through GaETC in the past years. I need sign language interpreters in 
order to fully participate in the GSIS conference during three-day conference, 
starting Monday, February 11th at 8 am thru Wednesday, February 13th at 12:30 

I request GSIS to provide American Sign Language interpreting services for me 
and hearing presenters/attendees. I know one of ASL interpreters who happen to 
live in Savannah. His name is Ramon Norrod.  You need to contact Georgia 
Interpreting Services Network (GISN) to hire two (2) ASL interpreters on each 
day.  Contact information is shown below. You need to contact GISN via Marilyn 
Teague as soon as possible before the assignments tend to be booked up fast, 
based on interpreters' availability.  Also, please provide GISN a copy of 
conference agenda, including list of sessions with time five days prior to the 

404-521-9100<tel:404-521-9100> or 8000-228-4992

Here is a list of certified & qualified interpreters.
Ramon Norrod (Savannah)
Jessie Romer
Jennifer McLean
Angie Nielsen
Laura Berzas
Marla Smith
Anna [Webb] McDuffie
