West Virginia Schools For The Deaf and the Blind

Superintendent's Message


At WVSDB, we love what we do and are proud of who we are. As a staff, our goals and focus remain on providing each member we serve with a safe and positive learning environment where continued growth for student learners is our key focus.  We aim to foster a positive, inclusive culture and school. We understand and recognize that each student, family member, and staff member is equally important and vital for achievement. Together we are a community and together, we are the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind (WVSDB).


The WVSDB is a place of respect. It is a place where students are educated and cared for in a safe, positive, and supportive environment.  Here, the campus-wide community recognizes and embraces each other’s talents. We recognize that excellence in education is achieved by working together in a unified, positive, supportive environment. Supporting one another, both campus-wide and statewide.

County educators, students, and their families are a part of our community, and we, the members of WVSDB, are a part of theirs. Together, we achieve greater outcomes; at a greater pace.  Together, we must lead the state; in character, instruction, cooperation, ethics, and positive attitude. Through campus wide collaboration, we are able to be innovative in our approach and methods. Through statewide collaboration we are able to lead this State in Deaf, blind, hard of hearing, low vision, and deafblind education. It is true that we are capable at greatness.

 Education is statewide. Every child in this state who is deaf, blind, hard of hearing, low vision or deafblind is our responsibility to serve. To serve in any capacity we are able. We must take student achievement to a much higher level by increasing opportunities and increasing rigor for all our young people. We recognize the greatness each student has the potential to achieve.


We thank you for your support, dedication, and hard work.
