American Sign Language


In 2005, the NH State Board of Education recognized American Sign Language as a World Language for the purposes of the High School minimum language requirement.

A committee began to study how to implement this mandate in September 2006, and submitted a proposal for approval by the Professional Standards Board in September 2007.

The certification for ASL as a World Language went into effect July 1, 2008. See ED 507.37 Modern Language Teacher.
