    Comprehensive Evaluation of Blind and Low Vision Students During COVID-19: A Guidance Document

    SF State, CSB, and CSULA have jointly prepared a guidance document for the evaluation of blind and low vision students during COVID-19. We are disseminating this document in the hopes that it will help others when making decisions about assessment protocols during online and hybrid instruction. Details are contained in the document along with the authorships, and a thanks is included to the California Association of School Psychologists for use of their Resource Paper on the topic. This live document is offered to the field for anyone to use, update or disseminate for your organizations’ needs. We encourage you to replace our logos with your own should you wish to do so:
