HEA 1443 Update

Hello ISD students, families, staff, alumni, and stakeholders,

I want to provide everyone with an update of HEA 1443. The act established a Task Force to further study the concept of the Indiana School for the Deaf and the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired to co-locate on one campus but operate independently. The Task Force met three times during 2020 and finalized the recommendation to the Indiana General Assembly. Our recommendation is to pursue co-habitation of both schools on a new campus. The new location will be within a 10 mile radius of I-465 that surrounds Marion County. The buildings on our current campus’ will be optimally maintained until the new campus is ready for occupancy. We also acknowledged the fiscal challenge of a $274 million budget. It will be up to the legislators to put this in motion or not.

If you have questions regarding HEA 1443, please feel free to contact me.

Dr. David Geeslin Superintendent/CEO
