Update from the Superintendent 

We made it.  It might be three little words, but it might be the most important accomplishment we had this year when we consider all the challenges that this year presented.  It took the efforts of everyone to make it work.  I would like to thank all the staff for their work and dedication to keep our school running and our students learning.  The students also played a huge role in the success of the 2020-21 school year.  Their willingness to adapt and to continue down their educational path is to be commended. 

This year there have been many additions to the educational landscape at SDSBVI.  The following is a list of the additions we have made or are making to assist our students and teachers.

  • 10 Large Screen Televisions
  • Teacher Laptops
  • Student Laptops
  • Student iPads
  • Dual Credit Classes Offered
  • Sensory Garden Musical Instruments
  • New Intercom and Classroom Sound Field System
  • Therapeutic Equipment for the PT/OT Room (currently being installed)
  • GoodMaps Orientation and Mobility System (currently being installed)

These projects and future projects will serve as a valuable foundation for future programming.  Thank you to all of the people that assisted with these projects.  As this year’s seniors graduate and we invite students back for ESY services, it serves as a time for reflection but also a time for celebration.  We made it!  You made it!  The students have grown so much since the beginning of the school year and we look forward to operating next year with fewer restrictions.  Our world is forever changing, and we will continue to adapt with it.  I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.  (Superintendent Dan Trefz)
