PRCVI Mission

The mission of PRCVI is to provide learning resources, leadership, information, training and consultation to support school districts' goals of equitable access and enhanced educational opportunities for students with visual impairments.

PRCVI Mandate

The primary function of the PRCVI is to provide British Columbia School Districts and Group I or II Independent Schools with alternate formats of provincially recommended learning resources and with specialized equipment to support the educational needs of students with visual impairments.

A second responsibility is to support school districts by providing consultation and training opportunities for teachers of students with visual impairments.

Who Are We?

PRCVI staffing includes experienced teachers of students with visual impairments, library personnel and alternate format specialists.

Who Do We Serve?

Students who are blind or visually impaired and attending public and group I or II independent schools in British Columbia are eligible for services from PRCVI. Requests for student support and materials are submitted by the student’s assigned vision teacher. School Districts are responsible for the proper care and storage of materials or equipment borrowed.
