Greetings! On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB), I extend a warm welcome to new and returning students and their families for what promises to be a most successful academic year. We take great pride in the rich history and traditions that make FSDB one of the best schools of its kind in the nation.
We work closely with the President and the FSDB administrative team to ensure top-notch educational opportunities for students who are deaf/hard of hearing or blind/visually impaired. We are proud of the depth and range of accomplishments of students, the dedication of staff members in nurturing student success, all the while maintaining high standards for teaching and learning. We also appreciate the valuable partnerships we have with parents, businesses, the community, and more.
Often we hear the phrase “FSDB family” which exemplifies in many ways the camaraderie that is felt by all who are associated with our school.
Thank you for helping us make FSDB the school we all want it to be – an exceptional school with an outstanding student body, highly qualified staff members who are committed to bringing out the best in our students, and a safe and secure campus that also carries historical charm.
Again, our warmest wishes for a rich and rewarding academic year!
Christopher D. Wagner
Chair, Board of Trustees
