• Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD)

    Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD) in Texas were instituted by the Texas Education Agency to provide quality services to all students in Texas who are deaf or hearing impaired.  Due to the low incidences of hearing impairment, students may come from several districts to a central school location for education services, or be served by teachers who are certified to work with students who are deaf/hard of hearing on their home campuses.  The SOUTHEAST TEXAS RDSPD is established as a shared services arrangement between 29 neighboring school districts.  Beaumont ISD is the fiscal agent.
