Today the Kentucky Department of Education, based on guidance from the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, approved a plan for the Kentucky School for the Blind to start the 2020-2021 school year virtually. All KSB students will start the year on August 24th and follow the non-traditional instruction (NTI) plan. KSB’s full NTI plan will be released soon and available to all families.


The safety of students and staff is paramount in all decisions that are being made regarding the reopening of school. We will continue to monitor the latest COVID-19 health guidance and adjust our plans as needed to meet the state’s Healthy at School guidance, which outlines safety expectations and best practices for Kentucky’s schools.


The current plan is for KSB to return to in-person instruction on October 5th, 2020. We will provide more information on virtual instruction for your child well in advance of August 24th.


Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
