As in past years, KSB will be hosting the Short Term Program Weekend Retreat for grades 6-12 from Friday, March 20 through Sunday, March 22, 2020 on the KSB campus in Louisville.  This year's theme is “Adventures in Accessibility”. The KSB Weekend Retreat is funded by the Kentucky School for the Blind Charitable Foundation.


Please note the following:

Students may bring optional spending money 

Students may arrive by local district bus or parent drop off between 2:00 and 3:00 pm on Friday and depart by bus or parent pick up between 1:00 and 2:00 pm on Sunday.  You may be able to make travel arrangements with a neighboring district if your district does not transport students to KSB.
