Annual Registration of Students with Visual Impairments (aka, VI Registration)
The TSBVI Outreach Program conducts the Annual Registration of Students Who Are Visually Impaired for the TEA though a contract with Region XI Education Service Center. This VI Registration is used as a data source to generate Federal Quota funds, to help Regional Education Service Centers and other state agencies analyze trends and plan services as well as serving as a basis for students to qualify for adapted textbooks.
