The Kansas State School for the Blind Celebrates
Inclusive Playground & New Programs
Tuesday, September 21, 2020 – The KS State School for the Blind (KSSB) is having a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house to celebrate its new inclusive playground, new spaces, and new programs on Friday, September 25th, 11:00 A.M at 1100 State Ave. in Kansas City, KS.
“We are highlighting a new, accessible playground for our students that was made possible by the KC Blind All-Stars, a 501c3 that supports our school. This was a fantastic public/private partnership that provides our students with a play space that promotes health and fitness,” said Jon Harding, KSSB Superintendent. An outdoor exercise is an important tool in helping maintain health and well-being in the time of COVID.
KSSB is also showcasing its new Makerspace, Preschool Enrichment Program, state-of-the-art, and Wayfinding/Navigation System and Mobile STEM Unit. The goal of the Mobile STEM Unit is to provide quality hands-on technology experiences to students who are blind and visually impaired in rural communities in Kansas.
KSSB is a proud member of the KCK Chamber of Commerce and Wyandotte County and has been a statewide resource since 1867. The school’s services reach over 800 students ages birth to 21 in a year.
