SDSBVI starting first full year in new facility

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – The coronavirus pandemic has impacted schools across the state at all levels.

South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Superintendent Dan Trefz has also noticed a difference, but said the school has a few things going in its favor.

Trefz, who replaced Marjorie Kaiser as superintendent earlier this year, said the students didn’t get in a full semester in the new building before the pandemic hit so the current experience is new for all involved.

He said the brand new building is ideal for the students of SDSBVI.
