Declaration of Need

Vista Center for the Blind and Visaully Impaired provides specialized vision instructors to California Local Education Agencies (LEAs). These instructors include Teachers of the Visually Impaired, Orientation and Mobility Specialists, and Assitive Technology Specialists. It is a priority for Vista Center to provide excellent service instruction through experienced teachers. Due to the severe shortage in vision instructors, Vista Center is fostering teachers with teaching credentials into the field of vision (Teachers of the Visually Impaired).

Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, a California Non Public School Agency, is certifying that there is an insufficient number of certificated persons who meet the county’s, agency’s or school’s specified employment criteria for the positions of Teacher of the Visually Impaired.
