Hard of hearing student Denied Interpreter at School

A Southern California school refused to provide a sign language interpreter for a hard of hearing student. Gianna Heaviland filed a complaint with the Civil Rights office of the Department of Education--forcing the San Dieguito Union High School District to adopt a new policy. Unfortunately, Heaviland won't be around to enjoy the change. It came too late for her. She's already graduated and now attending NTID in Rochester, NY. KGTV has a video report.
