VISION: "The right help, at the right time, in the right location for students with visual impairments"
MISSION: KSSB is a catalyst and leader in the development of exemplary programs and practices in vision services in Kansas. We build local capacity throughout the state via strategic partnerships to ensure learners with visual impairments are able to assume responsible roles in society and lead fulfilling lives.
We are already gearing up for the 2017 Regional Braille Challenge. This year, we'll have TWO locations: Kansas City (February 10th) and Wichita (February 25th).
Here's the lineup of activities for the fall Boys Weekend. We're anticipating a great event and will have pictures on our Facebook page.
