I'm checking with our Sped staff, too. They may have some thoughts on local folks for hire. If it wasn't school days, I'm sure we could contract with some of our school system staff, but they'll be on contract here. I'll see what thoughts they have and let everyone know :) Of course, maybe this GISN place has two in the Savannah area.... Who is contacting them?

This can be very costly, maybe as much as $2000.00 a day for the two people. GAETC has had to provide this service, too. We should try for someone in Savannah and Priscilla may want to ask the convention center who they normally use. I'm sure they have to deal with this often. Maybe Powerschool could help with this, since he is one of their customers. Tammy D.

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 pm. 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 conference. 404-521-9100<tel:404-521-9100> or 8000-228-4992 www.Gisn.info<http://www.Gisn.info/> Here is a list of certified & qualified interpreters.
