COVID-19 UPDATE: In-Person Learning

A message from Superintendent Annette Reichman and Assistant Superintendent Kristen Rex:The Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind tentatively plan to reopen Phoenix Day School for the Deaf and ASDB Tucson Campus on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, for in-school student learning.

The agency understands that there is a tremendous strain on families during our digital learning environment.If you need to contact an agency representative, please email our assistant superintendent Dr. Kristen Rex and .
