Community Based Instruction (CBI) is designed for students that need intensive instruction in functional and daily living skills. CBI provides “real life" educational experiences in local community environments.  The goal is to provide a variety of hands-on learning opportunities to help students acquire the skills to live in the world today. 


Students participating in Community Based Instruction go out into the community, rain or shine. Please dress for the weather. Consider sunscreen, a hat, and a water bottle during hot days.  For cold and rainy days, please wear warm clothing and a waterproof jacket with hood.
