Regional Day School for the Deaf > Home


Longview Regional Day School Services for the Hearing Impaired is a Shared Service Arrangement educational cooperative that provides services to students with hearing impairments.  Approximately 20 school districts in the East Texas area participate in this program. Services range from itinerant to self -contained classrooms for PK-12 at four LISD campuses. Any student who has a hearing loss that impairs their understanding of oral language or adversely affects their educational achievement in the school setting is eligible for consideration of services.  The Regional Day School for the Deaf operates in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws.
