Welcome to Our Site

Brian Darcy, Agency Administrator I want to take a moment and let folks know that the IESDB and ISDB are here to serve our students, families and partners in the State of Idaho. Like other schools throughout this great state, we are missing having smiling laughing children in our hallways. We are missing watching the growth and brilliance of discovery within our walls. That being said, we are making every effort to help your children continue to learn, although at a distance, for now. Thank you to a wonderful team, Teachers, Principals, Paras, and Directors, all jumped in immediately to make this happen. Please be patient as we figure this out – our number one priority continues to be your child, Thank you
Brian Darcy - I.E.S.D.B Administrator

student with poster reading me plus white cane equals independence

The Department of the Blind/ Visually Impaired staff and students united to celebrate White Cane day in October. They carried their posters during a walk along Main Street in Gooding, to build the awareness of the general public about White canes and their use within the Blind /Visually Impaired population.

International White Cane Safety Day helps increase awareness across the globe about important safety considerations when encountering people using canes.

  • The white cane signifies that the pedestrian using it is blind or visually impaired.
  • The white cane alerts motorists of the need to exercise special caution and provide the user the right of way.
  • The white cane symbolizes the independence, confidence and skills of the person who is using it.
