We are committed to supporting schools and families while in-person learning has been suspended and have gathered materials to assist in the remote instruction of students with visual impairment, including blindness.  Consistent with our mission, we are providing evidence-based practices and supports from national, state and local groups. These shared resources do not serve as CDE guidance for delivering services remotely.
