Welcome to TN RCVI!
We are excited to announce that we have a new director, Mr. Allen Huang! Mr. Huang is joining the RCVI after several years working with both TSB’s Outreach Department and on campus as an assistive technology coordinator.
Dr. Kathy Segers retired this summer after transforming the RCVI and truly bringing it into the 21st century. We wish her best in her retirement but are also glad that she’ll be staying on part time for the 2021-2022 school year!
What is RCVI?
The Tennessee Resource Center for the Visually Impaired (RCVI) exists to ensure that all students who are blind or visually impaired in the state of Tennessee have access to accessible instructional materials, as well as materials available from the American Printing House for the Blind (APH).
For example, RCVI can facilitate the production of textbooks and ancillary materials in large print and braille formats, and items like video magnifiers and specialized tactile graphics kits for teaching Earth and life science are available for ordering from APH.
Who is eligible for services from RCVI?
I need to order materials for my student.
I need to register a new student for services with RCVI.
A student transferred into my district from another LEA in Tennessee.
We’ve had personnel changes in our district. How do we update who can order from RCVI?
