Dear Mr Wasilowski,

Thank you for your email regarding the School for the Deaf and the Blind. We appreciate your interest in education in Idaho for this specific population. The State Board committee to review education for
the deaf and the blind presented general recommendations to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee and the State Board of Education this month. The committee's final report can be found on the State Board

As you will find in the report, the committee has recommended that the Board appoint a workgroup to address each recommendation over the next two years. There are currently no recommendations for specific
programs, school closures, etc. The recommendations focus on a variety of education and funding issues designed to ensure access to good educational programs for students all over Idaho.

Please feel free to email any comments to the Board email or to my email and we will be happy to share your comments with the workgroup once it is established. Also, please feel free to email any additional
questions to me.

Christine Ivie
Elementary Secondary Academic Officer
State Board of Education
