Superintendent's Message

This year students and staff at Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) can look forward to a number of new and exciting changes around campus.

The Kratzberg Recreation Center (KRC) was painted over the summer and has a brand new look. Please check out our updated gym and support our Orioles by attending a game during the upcoming fall sports season.

In addition to revamping our facilities, we have also added a number of talented staff members to our Administration and Education Leadership teams. It is my pleasure to announce that Carl Brown has been promoted to Operations Director, and Jeremy Hawk will serve as our new Budget Director. Within our education department, Andy Alka has joined the Middle School and High School department as principal. Prior to his new role, Mr. Alka served as principal of the Willard School for 8 years. Sandra Wascher has been named Interim Willard School Supervising Teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. Our leadership teams will continue to work together to make this year, and the years to come, the best yet.

Indiana School for the Deaf relies on the strong leadership of the teachers and staff that devote their time and energy to the growth of our students. I’d like to personally thank each of our teachers and administrators, established and new, for their continued commitment to excellence.

In a world of Airbnb, Facebook and Uber we must prepare our children for the innovations of the future. Many of our students will have jobs that simply do not exist in our present time. ISD will continue to be a rich bilingual, bicultural environment where students can develop the skills and confidence needed to thrive in the careers of the future.  Thank you for providing us with another year to partner with you and serve your family.



Dr. David Geeslin
