Superintendent's Message

With our campus closed for the academic summer – we do not stop our continued involvement with our students. This is the time we capitalize on providing summer activities for students interested in participating in experiences that enable personal growth.

We offer the Willard Summer Program during July 6-17 for ISD students in elementary and middle schools. This two week program takes place both on campus and off campus. Academics are taught during the morning with activities taking place during the afternoon/evenings.
ISD will have several student representatives at the month-long Youth Leadership Camp (YLC)  in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. ISD has a long and cherished relationship with YLC.  ISD students have attended almost every year since the camp was established in 1969, when it was led by ISD teacher, Gary Olson along with the venerable Dr. Frank Turk.

Several of our athletes are participating in the annual Mike Glenn All-Star Basketball Camp in Atlanta, Georgia. This amazing individual, whose parents taught at the Georgia School for the Deaf, will host the 36th annual basketball camp.

We will also have two fabulous representatives at the National Black Deaf Advocates convention in Louisville, KY the first week of August. Both students are outstanding representatives of our school and we know they will make us proud.

Along with every student’s family summer plans, don't forget to attend our state’s annual county fairs and the Indiana State Fair across the street from our beautiful campus for three weeks in August, 
I look forward to seeing every student returning to campus refreshed, energized and motivated for another outstanding academic year!
Dr. David Geeslin
