Colorado students from the ages of birth to twenty-one are eligible to receive services either at or from CSDB. Students enrolled at CSDB must have a documented hearing and/or vision loss as defined by Colorado eligibility guidelines. Students are often enrolled on a diagnostic basis in order to make an accurate determination of the student's eligibility status. Students with additional disabilities are also welcome to consider attending CSDB. A staffing team, including a CSDB staff member, the student's parents, and a local school district representative, determine if CSDB is the appropriate learning environment based on the educational needs of the student.
If parents or legal guardians reside within the State of Colorado and outside the El Paso County area, the student is eligible to participate in the residential living program during the week. There is no tuition for room and board. Out-of-state students will be considered on a space available basis and are required to pay tuition.
Families of children with sensory disabilities are always welcome to visit CSDB whether they are considering enrollment or not. For further information, contact: Jon Vigne, Director of Special Education at 719-578-2177 (v/t) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
