The primary function of the Indiana School for the Deaf Board is to provide the leadership, vision, accountability, and advocacy to ensure the fulfillment of the ISD mission statement.

In carrying out this responsibility, the board will establish policies, assess school performance, facilitate strategic planning efforts, oversee budget preparation, promote stakeholder communication, support statewide outreach efforts, and make recommendations to the Governor and General Assembly.


All meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Indiana School for the Deaf, Willard Hall, Media Center, 1200 E 42nd Street, Indianapolis, IN. There is no meeting in December.
