This document presents the Oregon state guidelines for provision of educational interpreting services for students who are deaf. An introduction defines an educational interpreter and considers how to determine the need for an educational interpreter and the student-interpreter relationship. The next section details the roles and responsibilities of educational personnel working with students who are deaf (the educational interpreter, the regular classroom teacher, the teacher of the deaf) in the areas of communication facilitation, student evaluations, planning, the Individualized Education Program, program content, materials, management, recordkeeping, parent involvement, inservice, and tutoring. The next section offers guidelines for school personnel concerning identifying the interpreting system needed, working with educational interpreters in the regular classroom, the procedure for hiring a qualified educational interpreter, substitute interpreters, paying educational interpreters, supervision and evaluation of interpreters, and staff development. Appendices include: a map and addresses of regional programs for the hearing impaired in Oregon, a sample job description of an educational interpreter, a sample form for observing educational interpreting, and a list of eight continuing education and professional organizations.
