Deaf & Hard of Hearing Programs

Mission Statement

The mission of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Program (DHH) is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and young adults, primarily through a professionally supported, school environment, and to assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow. We strive to help all students become confident, educated, self-advocating and caring individuals who are college, career and community ready.  

The Green Bay Area Public Schools Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) program has been educating students with hearing loss for many decades now. We serve students ranging in age from Early Childhood through age 21 offering itinerant services within a child’s home school, as well as program based services for students with more significant needs. The abundant service our specialists in Green Bay provide is top-notch and focused on student success in the real world.
