Interpreter message

Standing outside Central Texas College's duck pond on Dec. 3, Vanessa Bryant, a sign language interpreter with Killeen ISD, signed 'I Love You' as a message to deaf and hard of hearing students affected by the district's termination of more than a dozen sign language interpreters. Bryant was later hired back by KISD after the Herald published an article about the terminations.

Deaf and hard of hearing students may get their interpreters back before the Christmas holiday.

The Killeen Independent School District issued an update to parents and guardians of deaf and hard of hearing students Tuesday announcing certain uncertified sign language interpreters are in the process of being rehired.

Thankfully the district kept focus to remain lawful in their practice while also working to provide services. Despite all the negative publicity that has been shared. I will recognize that the district didn't give up and merely found a way to work within the legal parameters of the law.

I doubt the truth of the matter will ever be revealed.
