Outreach Programs are designed to meet the needs of students statewide who do not attend CSDB, their families and school district staff. A variety of services for students, birth through high school, who are blind/visually impaired and deaf/hard of hearing are available.

The 2020 - 2025 CSDB strategic plan identifies the following goals for Outreach Programs:

Strategic Goal

As Colorado's premier resource on birth through high school education of the blind/visually impaired and deaf/hard of hearing, CSDB will be known statewide for its positive and successful collaboration with families, school districts and other stakeholders.

5-Year Goal 

CSDB’s Outreach Department will provide a greater and more responsive array of integrated services and expertise in educating blind/visually impaired and deaf/hard of hearing learners from birth through high school to families, school districts and other stakeholders in the state.
