Community

Whether they live in New Orleans or Shreveport, Lake Charles or Monroe, or any Louisiana town imbetween, LSD students are at "home" in Baton Rouge. Our school is not just "located" in Baton Rouge, it is part of the Baton Rouge community. Individuals, organizations, churches and businesses show their support and friendship to our school in many ways - from educational grants to maintenance of our flowerbeds. Volunteers have built playgrounds,  organized bookrooms, made copies, laminated classroom materials - the list is endless.

In our Baton Rouge area are several organizations and clubs serving the needs of the Deaf community, but the "heart" of the Deaf community in Louisiana Deaf will probably always be our school. Our annual Homecoming Weekend in the Fall and our Graduation Ceremony in May are very special occasions when current and former students, staff and "LSD family" come back to LSD to enjoy catching up with old friends.

This section of our website contains information about local organizations, churches and clubs which serve the Deaf community. Information about service providers such as the Louisiana Commission for the Deaf and Deaf Action Centers can be found in the Resources section of the site.
