South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Summer Programs

The Extended School Year Summer Program brings together students from across South Dakota who are blind and visually impaired for learning and fun.

  • Students who are blind or visually impaired, ages 6-21, who reside in South Dakota may attend free of charge.  Students residing outside of the state may attend the program in Aberdeen on a tuition basis.
  • Each student’s summer program is coordinated with their IEP or 504 Plan. If your child’s team determines that he/she needs the “Skills of Blindness” to receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), the Summer Program offered at the SDSBVI can be considered as an Extended School Year (ESY) program.
  • A student may attend one week or any combination of one to six weeks.
