This curriculum project was created in hopes of developing a set of guidelines that will strengthen the use of C-print and speech to text services at the K-12 level. The (1998) National Task force on Educational Interpreting released a report that outlined the job description, roles and responsibilities of all Educational Interpreters. In contract, C-print and speech to text services do not yet have a clear consensus or mandate on the roles and responsibilities involved in this service. This project attempts to address the strengths and weaknesses of implementing C-print in public schools. It also creates materials to better prepare teachers, students, and support personnel to use these services effectively in the K-12 demographic. The materials implemented in this project were created with the support and feedback of high school and college instructors, college, high school, and one middle school student, and with the ideas and support of C-Print service providers. These materials will help the provider and the Educational team supporting the C-print service have a more clear picture of what their respective roles and responsibilities are to implement this service successfully for all deaf and hard of hearing students.
