On June 1, 2011 the North Carolina School for the Deaf, Governor Morehead School for the Blind and Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf transferred from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to the Department of Public Instruction (DPI.) Policies, forms, web site location, and other information will be updated to reflect this change.

Residential Schools and Other Education Programs:
These schools and programs provide quality, comprehensive, developmental, and educational opportunities for eligible children, their families, and public school professionals so that students can develop the skills necessary to lead productive lives---vocationally, socially, and personally---resulting ultimately in the achievement of their highest potential for independent and successful lives.
All services provided by these schools and programs are free of charge to children, their families, and the professionals who serve them because of appropriations provided by the North Carolina General Assembly and grants from the United States Department of Education.
