DESCRIPTION: This evaluation was created by the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (USDB) to provide standards and evaluation criteria by which to evaluate all aspects of the USDB.

The report evaluates the following: the administration (board, superintendent, administrators, instructional staff, salaries, etc.); pupil and personnel services; school facilities; custodial program; food service program; school programs (language, speech, reading, auditory training, preschool, social studies, science, mathematics, art, and integration); curriculum; educational resource center; career education programs (schedules, home economics, arts and crafts, graphic arts, etc.); residential living and activities; special programs (teacher training, behavior modification, and federally supported programs); and medical services.
