Welcome

The Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI) educates and invests in many children that, due to blindness/low vision or blindness/low vision and additional handicapping conditions, other schools cannot or have difficulty serving. Through its outreach initiatives, ISBVI provides services to children and young adults throughout the state who are blind or have low vision who are not enrolled at the School.

School Closure

Governor Holcomb signed an executive order requiring schools within the State of Indiana to remain closed until at least May 1. The date for closure could be extended through the academic year.  Additionally, all state testing will be canceled for the academic year.

Parents and Guardians of students enrolled at the school will be receiving instructional packets for your children at the start of the coming week.  These packets along with regular communications from teachers at the school will enhance educational opportunities and experiences while your children remain at home. 

We continue to take the necessary steps to sanitize the school to ensure that a safe and healthy environment is available when school resumes. A letter will be included in the educational packets that will provide additional information. 

 

Please continue to take the necessary steps to help stop the spread of the virus that include, but are not limited to, social distancing and hand washing.
