     Fulton County Schools is an education system that throughout my academic career, as well as countless others has promoted and achieved diversity, inclusivity, and academic excellence. Although being the 4th largest school district in the State of Georgia with over 90,000 students, curriculum, opportunities, and resources are present for each and every student to reach their full potential. This is the product of the overwhelming support and cooperation between parents, educators, staff, and the students. Fulton County offers several world language course selections inspiring students to be diverse, inclusive, and global citizens. To enhance the academic excellence that Fulton County Schools provides, adding American Sign Language (ASL) in schools that don't offer this course will further improve an education system that already has and will continue to produce our future leaders. Adding the ASL course as an option for students will have an immediate impact. The community of Fulton County would include a future generation of pioneers, innovators, and creators who can communicate more effectively with everyone despite possible communication barriers. Society is growing, and the addition of American Sign Language as a language option will allow students educational resources to expand, push Fulton County Schools to the next level of excellence, and create a community of parents, students, and staff who are contributing to a diverse, inclusive, and visionary society of the future.
