History

Since its inception in 1977, Louisiana’s Special School District (SSD) has provided educational opportunities to students with low-incidence disabilities and a variety of unique needs in the state of Louisiana. Currently, the district serves approximately 1,800 students across the state. The district operates three schools – Louisiana School for the Deaf in Baton Rouge (LSD), Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired in Baton Rouge (LSVI), and Louisiana Special Education Center in Alexandria (LSEC). SSD also provides educational services to students at five privately operated facilities and 12 public health and correctional facilities spanning across four state agencies and four administrative departments.

The district operates from a central campus in Baton Rouge, located on Brightside Lane.
