POSITION PROFILE
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
OVERVIEW
Founded in 1869 and situated on a lovely 21-acre campus in suburban Pittsburgh, the Western Pennsylvania
School for the Deaf (WPSD) is the largest comprehensive center for the education of deaf and hard of
hearing students in Pennsylvania. Offering tuition-free programs in four locations across the state
(Pittsburgh, Scranton, Hershey and Camp Hill), WPSD serves more than 325 deaf and hearing impaired
children from birth to 12th grade from 54 Pennsylvania counties. The Pittsburgh campus has approximately
188 students, 40% of whom live during the school week in a beautiful state-of the-art residence which was
completed in 2014. The enrollment of the Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is 60 students
and growing. Hershey is home to WPSD’s new preschool program, and Camp Hill is the location of the
Outreach Program Office. WPSD students have a wide range of hearing losses; more than 30% of the
population use cochlear implants and 52% use hearing aids.
“We prepare each deaf and hard-of-hearing student for all aspects of life through a continuum of highquality,
individualized education and extracurricular programs. We are an active partner in and resource
for our community.” This mission statement summarizes the “WPSD way”. Utilizing American Sign
Language (ASL), sign-supported English and spoken English, the School meets the students’ communication
needs on an individual basis. WPSD’s challenging and innovative academic program, including STEM
opportunities, meets and exceeds state and national standards. Its early intervention program, Choices for
Children, serves more than 100 families throughout the state. WPSD has achieved accreditation from the
Conference of Educational Administrators for Schools and Programs for the Deaf (CEASD) for over twenty
years, and the National Association of Special Education Teachers has recognized WPSD as a “School of
Excellence”.
Academics are supplemented by performing and visual arts, broadcasting, video production and many
extracurricular activities including clubs and a comprehensive sports program. LionWorks Printing and
Graphics provides a wide range of high quality services that benefit the WPSD students who participate in
training in the print shop and gain relevant work experience. There are travel opportunities to Washington,
D.C., New York City, Gettysburg and London. Mainstreaming is possible through a local elementary school,
a local career and workforce training center and the student’s home school district. A broad range of support
services are available. WSPD partners with Rochester Institute of Technology/National Technical Institute
for the Deaf to offer WPSD students college coursework and transferrable college credit. Seventy-five
percent of recent graduates go on to college or technical-vocational schools.
WPSD makes a lifelong commitment to its graduates, regardless of age, through its resource referral service,
“WPSD For Life!” At WPSD, the possibilities for the deaf and hard of hearing are dynamic and endless. As
one parent stated, “Our family has been involved with WPSD since our daughter was 8 months old. WSPD
has helped our family raise her. They taught us a language to communicate with and a culture to embrace.
They’ve given our daughter the support and tools that she needed to become a strong, intelligent confident,

Moorhead is named #1 Best Small City in America by NerdWallet.com which ranked 1,300 cities with less than 75,000 residents. “Moorhead residents get the perks of a small city — affordable housing and a good work-life balance, for example — plus the added economic boost from Fargo, North Dakota, its big neighbor across the river,” says Courtney Miller of NerdWallet. Moorhead is located next to the Red River in the Red River Valley. Agriculture remains prominent in Moorhead, but the city is also home to notable corporate, manufacturing and distribution industries, including American Crystal Sugar (corporate headquarters and sugar beet processing), Busch Agricultural Resources (malt manufacturing) and Pactiv (container manufacturing). Microsoft North Central District, Essentia Health, Sanford Health, VA Regional Healthcare System, Eide Bailly, and John Deere are other major corporations in Moorhead. The unemployment rate in the Moorhead is consistently below the national average and property values are stable.

 

The Rourke Art Gallery and the Rourke Art Museum are located in Moorhead which are cultural institutions that host the annual Midwestern Invitational Exhibition. The Hjemkomst Center is also located in the city. It is a museum containing a re-creation of a Viking ship of the same name. The Clay County Museum and Archives is in a free museum in the lower level of the Hjemkomst Center. The Society has over 30,000 artifacts, one of the largest and most important historic collections in Minnesota. Located on the grounds of the Hjemkomst Center is a stave church. The traditional Norwegian-style church serves as a symbol of the Norwegian heritage in the Red River Valley. An additional historical landmark is the Victorian Comstock House, a blend of Queen Anne and Eastlake styles built in 1883. Bluestem Center for the Arts home to the Trollwood Performing Arts School, and StrawHat Players are also attractions in Moorhead.

 

Moorhead has five major institutions of higher learning which include: Concordia College (private liberal arts college), Minnesota State University Moorhead (public university), Minnesota State Community and Technical College (two-year to four-year technical college), Globe University/Minnesota School of Business, (private college), and Rasmussen College (a two- to four-year college). The combined student enrollment of these colleges is approximately 14,000.

Fargo has many attractions as well: Plains Art Museum, F-M Community Theater, Theater B, Stage at Island Park, Little Country Theater, Gate City Bank Theater at the Fargo Dome, Fargo Theater, Red River Zoo, Children’s Museum at Yunker Farm, Fargo Moorhead Ballet, Fargo Moorhead Opera, Fargo Moorhead Symphony Orchestra, annual Blues Fest, annual Fargo Film Festival, Fargo Marathon, FM RedHawks Independent League Baseball.
