6141 Alternative Formats for Instructional Materials

Vendors who agree to provide materials in a usable alternative format shall be given preference in the purchase of instructional materials. “Alternative Format” is defined as any medium or format other than a traditional print textbook, for presentation of instructional materials that is needed as an accommodation for each student with a disability, including students enrolled in the School District with Section 504 Accommodation Plans. Alternative formats include, but are not limited to Braille, large print, open and closed captioned, audio, or an electronic file in an approved format as defined in the Commissioner’s Regulations.

The District Plan will ensure that all instructional materials to be used in the schools of the School District are available in a usable alternative format for each student with a disability, at the same time as such instructional materials are available to non-disabled students.
