About Us

Our Vision
"The right help, at the right time, in the right location for students with visual impairments"

Our 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.

Our Goals
The State Board of Education commissioned the Kansas Association of School Boards (KASB) to conduct a study of our school in the fall of 2017. That study produced a report which made five recommendations. With input from stakeholders and staff, KSSB has begun implementation of strategies to address the following goals:
1) Restructure Administration
2) Increase Outreach Services
3) Improve Visibility and Communication 
4) Increase Professional Development
5) Improve Student Transitions
