VINTON (KWWL) -
Monday night the Iowa Board of Regents held an open forum meeting to discuss the future of the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School.
Remotes in Council Bluffs, Spencer, Davenport, Dubuque, Sioux City, Johnston and Vinton convened to give supporters of IBSSSA chance to voice their support for the school.
Former students, administrators and others spoke about their positive experiences and the need for this specialized educational community. Many spoke about the need to preserve American Sign Language, and the specialized sensory experiences needed by the visually and hearing impaired to function as independent adults.
If the school is closed, the board would open regional centers across the state.
