Offering STEM learning opportunities during the summer: The district engages its blind and visually impaired students over the summer in maker activities such as building kayaks and hovercrafts.
Providing access to resources for students living in isolated areas: USDB created a statewide network to provide virtual classroom experiences for deaf and blind students in the most rural, remote areas of the state; deaf students can carry a virtual interpreter from class to class on an iPad, and blind students can benefit from virtual, personal coaching and assessment from a teacher of the visually impaired without traveling for hours.
Updating school facilities for improved student access: The district has a multi-year comprehensive technology overhaul initiative, incorporating cutting-edge environmental engineering for deaf and blind students, including software upgrades for improved blind student accessibility, implementing Trekker Breeze for blind GPS navigation, and purchasing braillenote touch devices.
