    Welcome to WCBVI


    The WCBVI campus is located adjacent to the beautiful Rock River near downtown Janesville, Wisconsin. The WCBVI operates the Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (WSBVI), a residential school for blind and visually impaired K-12 students. The school, in addition to providing a general education curriculum, offers intensive instruction in skills which minimize the effects of blindness (e.g. Braille instruction, travel with white cane, use of technology, appropriate social skills which would otherwise be learned incidentally through sight, etc.). The WCBVI, through its Janesville campus/school and state wide outreach team, provide a wide array of statewide services, assessments, summer/weekend programs, resources, and professional opportunities.

    The WCBVI is guided in its mission by the The Blind and Visual Impairment Education Advisory Council which is comprised of professionals, parents, advocates, and leaders in general and special education of the blind and visually impaired.

    Tours of our facility can be arranged with Mandy Jordan at (608) 758-6141 or by email at amanda.jordan@wcbvi.k12.wi.us. Please keep in mind that placement must be through the IEP process at your local school district.
