The Parent-Teacher-Counselor Organization (PTCO) for the Indiana School for the Deaf was established in 1951 by parents wanting to partner with the school to improve and enhance the educational and extracurricular opportunities for students and their families at ISD. After all these years, PTCO still continues with that tradition. It is our belief that families and guardians are a vital ingredient to student success. Working together, we can achieve our goals now and for many years to come. However, we need your help.
Working together, we can achieve our goals now and for many years to come. But we need your help. If you or your group would like more information or are interested in building a partnership with the PTCO, please contact one of our officers.
Through the bilingual/bicultural philosophy, PTCO exists to serve as an advocate and financial supporter for the diverse educational needs and rights of all Deaf and hard-of-hearing children and their families at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
The purpose of the PTCO is to enhance and support the educational experience at the Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD), to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parental involvement, and to facilitate communication between parents, teachers, administration, dormitory staff, and the community.
