Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing


Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf

Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD) in Texas were instituted by the Texas Education Agency to provide quality services to all students in Texas who are deaf or hearing impaired. Due to the low incidences of hearing impairment, students may come from several districts to a central school location for education services, or be served by teachers who are certified to work with students who are deaf/hard of hearing on their home campuses.  The Wichita Falls RDSPD is established as a shared services arrangement between 36 neighboring school districts; with WFISD as the fiscal agent.
