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.

The Marion County Health Department mandated that all schools within the county provide virtual instruction for their students on or before November 30, 2020 through January 15, 2021. While the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI) is not a typical local school with local oversight, but rather a school that falls directly under the State of Indiana Governance structure, ISBVI will begin virtual instruction the Monday after Thanksgiving break, beginning on Monday, November 30, 2020. School will resume in-person instruction on Monday, January 4, 2021, following the scheduled winter break. State statistics will be reviewed in mid-December to determine if virtual instruction needs to be extended beyond the January 4 date.
ISBVI Rocket Pantry
ISBVI's school-based food pantry is available to students and their families, and to staff in the coming weeks. Pre-packaged boxes will be ready to be picked up, drive-thru style, at the Elementary building front doors on Wednesdays, December 2 - 16. Contact Neale Red Elk if you would like to pick up a box. Neale's contact information and more details about the ISBVI Rocket Pantry can be found HERE.
In addition, if you have a student enrolled at ISBVI and you make arrangements with Neale to pick up from the pantry in December, you will also receive breakfast and lunch bags for your student.
