The Kansas State School for the Blind is a special purpose school for students aged 3-21 years of age who are visually impaired and are referred by their local school district for evaluation at KSSB in consideration of a placement decision. KSSB is a secondary service provider that assists school districts in their provision of a Free and Appropriate Public Education for their students, through time-limited placements and statewide outreach services. Regardless of where KSSB services are provided, school districts retain primary responsibility for their students.
Daily School Schedule
Monday – Thursday 7:50 am to 3:16 pm
Friday 7:50 am to 1:45 pm
Note: Friday school schedule (or Thursday if there is no school on Friday) allows students who must travel a longer distance to arrive home at a more reasonable hour and also allows time for staff professional development and necessary meetings.
