Lawmaker may seek legislative remedy for school of deaf and blind

The Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind currently runs under the state’s centralized computer network and Sen. Emmett W. Hanger Jr. has raised concerns about the network’s inability to meet the specialized needs of the school, and other frustrations about the expenses of the network system. He has introduced legislation to exempt the school from this network; the school serves about 115 deaf/blind students on a campus in Staunton.
