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 poses with scarecrow

The ISDB staff for the Blind and Visually impaired took their students to visit a nearby Pumpkin Patch in October. The Crismore’s Pumpkin Patch in Buhl welcomed the ISDB group on a sunny Fall day. The students walked through the pumpkin patch to search for their special pumpkin to bring back to school. In addition, many of the students romped and explored the corn maze, and had their pictures taken on the hay stacks with the scarecrow!

The trip was capped off with lunch in the Buhl City Park, before returning to school with their pumpkins in hand! At school the teachers used the pumpkins for some exploratory activities—carving pumpkins (with lots of help!), feeling and removing the seeds, and roasting the seeds in the oven.
