Audit shows cost of educating hearing impaired students.
The Office of Auditor of State released a report on the Iowa School for the Deaf, Council Bluffs, Iowa for the year ended June 30, 2012.
The School is governed by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa and provides an education commensurate with the needs of students who are Iowa residents and less than twenty-one years of age with hearing loss which is too severe to acquire an education in the
public schools. The School also provides services for residents of the State of Nebraska upon such terms as may be fixed by the Board of Regents.
For the year ended June 30, 2012, the average enrollment was 101 students with an average cost per student of $94,529, compared
to an average enrollment of 108 students and an average cost per student of $99,970 for the prior year.
During the year ended June 30, 2012, the School provided outreach services to 27 off campus students compared to 31 off campus students during the year ended June 30, 2011.
A copy of the report is available for review at the Iowa School for the Deaf,
