Distance Learning

About

Students will have access to teacher-developed, grade, course and school-specific instructional materials through distance instruction provided virtually, online or telephonically. It is our intention for all students to be engaged and have access to meaningful educational opportunities even under difficult circumstances. Scroll down to find digital resources organized by school.

 

Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP)

On rare occasions, it may be necessary to close the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB) due to weather or other emergency situations.  If this occurs, FSDB will make every effort to ensure students have access to high-quality learning opportunities at home. This Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP) is intended to reduce the disruption for our students by providing alternative, distance learning assignments during school closure.

 

Contact

While the FSDB campus is closed, the quickest way to reach us is via email. Please source the appropriate contact below and include your name, contact information, student name and concern or question. Please contact your child's assistant principal for any technology issue.
