Corsicana ISD Regional Day School for the Deaf
The mission of the Regional Day School Program of the Deaf (RDSPD) is to provide services and support to all deaf and hard of hearing students to allow them the opportunity for a bright future. This bright future is realized through rigorous education, family and community education, advocacy, and strong relationships. Our students, ranging from infants to young adults, will receive specialized instruction, social opportunities, resources, and a caring staff that will lead students to achieve their highest potential.
The vision of the Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) is to expand and continually improve the educational opportunities, programs, and services for all students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Communication progress and academic growth will be assessed allowing students to visualize their personal and individualized goals and potential. Families will be provided support through the opportunity to attend sign language classes, support in the understanding of deaf culture, support in understanding their rights, and become a partner in their child’s education.
Our Staff is Deaf-initely Awesome
The Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) will provide a staff dedicated to building relationships with students and families. We possess a love for the language and culture and see the opportunity to provide services to students in the RDSPD as a calling. Many of the staff members within the RDSPD have a history of deaf or hard of hearing in their own families and feel called to help students learn to advocate for themselves, feel accepted, and reach their maximum potential.
