For information about admission to the ISDB, see this Outline of our Admissions Policies and Procedures.

Our mission is to assist parents, school districts and state agencies in providing accessibility, quality and equity to students in the state with sensory impairments through a continuum of service and placement options. Our vision for each of the children we serve is Education, Communication and Independence for Life!

The IESDB will serve all qualifying residents of Idaho from birth to age 21. At one end of this continuum are the programs and services offered by the Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind, on its campus located in Gooding, Idaho.

The school is accredited through Advanced-ED and has a specialized curriculum established for students with hearing and vision loss. Students who wish to attend must be referred by their local district (LEA) and placed by their IEP or 504 teams for free and appropriate educational services in residential or day school programs on the campus.
