PSD Visits ISD

Peter Bailey, Head of School at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, stopped by ISD during his Route 66 Trip. The trip was one of PSD 200 fundraising events, which they will officially be celebrating in April 2020. One of the goals on the Route 66 was to try and stop by the Deaf schools if it is on the way per students' request. Fortunately, Peter was able to stop by 7 schools and ours was one of them.
