Construction Update - "Building for the Future"  

Students began classes in our new SDSBVI on Monday, January 13.  Students and staff are adjusting remarkably well to the new layout and new routines.  Among the most noticeable features are the ability to control daylight and classroom lighting and the two staircases.  The dorm is set up in pods, with 5 rooms sharing a bathroom, a large commons area with a kitchen, teen center, and playroom.

Northern State University has an embedded classroom where the courses in visual impairment are being taught. 

While we are still finishing up odds and ends from the punch list and waiting for a few items to be delivered, the new building has exceeded our expectations.  Two students have already moved into the student apartments. 

We are extremely grateful for the work of the Northern State University Foundation and the generous donors who made this dream a reality for us.  The relationship with NSU is unique and has the potential to provide even further opportunities for students at both schools. 

We are planning an open house and ribbon cutting (date to be determined).
