The School for the Deaf, founded in 1861, provides residential and day programs for elementary and secondary children who are deaf. The school operates under the jurisdiction of the State Board of Education, which appoints a superintendent and accredits the school. The School is also accredited by the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges. The adopted curricula meet all state curriculum standards. Special emphasis is placed on language development and communication, with American Sign Language, English, speech, and audition complementing all skills that reinforce one another. It is the mission of the Kansas State School for the Deaf (KSSD) to provide students with total access to language and educational excellence in a visual environment while serving as a resource on deafness and deaf education to school districts and families.
