Hello, I’m Dr. Susan Lane- Outlaw, executive director of Metro Deaf School. I wanted to update the community about our school growth and our new building. I am excited to announce that we have a signed purchase agreement for our new school at 1125 Energy Park Drive. This is at the corner of Lexington and Energy Park.
In October 2016, Governor Mark Dayton announced the Connect 700 Program (abbreviated C700). The C700 Program is a pre-probationary trial work program that allows eligible individuals with disabilities the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to perform a specific job through C700 for up to 700 hours. C700 employees will receive wages that fit the pay scale for their job but will not receive full benefits.
