Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD). We are always excited to have new volunteers join our team.  All volunteers are required to be 18 years or older. State of Indiana Policy requires volunteers to have a criminal history check every three years. If you are unsure if your previous background check is still valid please contact us.

Your volunteer application can be emailed to Mary Rice (MRice@isd.k12.in.us),  mailed to Mary Rice at Indiana School for the Deaf, Alumni Building, Room 117, 1200 East 42nd Street, Indianapolis, IN 46205-2099 or brought to her office. You may also contact Ms. Rice by calling 317-550-4853.

ISD Anti-Bullying Training

All volunteers are required to complete the Anti-Bullying training. Thank you for doing your part to make the ISD a safe and special place for students to learn and grow.


After we process your application and have conducted a criminal background check, we may contact you to set up a meeting to discuss our volunteer program. All volunteers are given assignments based upon ISD’s needs and your skills.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our school!
