  • Eligible for special education services under the criteria for Deaf/Hard of Hearing

  • Between the ages of 3 and 22 years

  • Has adequate evaluation/assessment information

  • Has completed an ISD Educational Tour of the facility and campus

  • Has had a recent physical examination by a medical provider and updated immunization record

  • Registered with your home school district

After a review of the educational records by ISD, a CCC meeting will be scheduled by the LEA. The parent/legal guardian must ask the LEA to invite ISD to participate in the meeting to discuss the student’s current educational programming and progress and to determine if ISD may be an appropriate educational placement to support the student’s overall language, communication and educational goals and objectives.

If the CCC determines that ISD is the appropriate educational placement, the family will also complete additional ISD registration paperwork prior to the student’s first day at ISD.



For questions, to request additional information or to schedule an Educational Tour, please contact: Educational Tour is currently closed.
