    Back-to-School Resources

    I have been working as an Itinerant Teacher for 4 years. Every year I have received a new caseload in new locations. It takes time to learn the school districts and to locate the IT people and the Special Education Supervisor. There are numerous meetings at the start of school and IT is running around troubleshooting problems. We are into week three of this school year and I have been able to track down one IT person and no Special Education Directors. Students should have access to their Bookshare on the first day of school. I travel during the summer and usually learn my caseload on the first day of work. Is their a process that allows Vi Teachers to transfer their Bookshare student account to a different sponsor?

    Interested in Volunteering, however...

    Are their minimum or maximum amount of books someone must complete in order to serve as a volunteer. I have more free time in the Summer to volunteer, but have little time available during the school year. Do you offer training videos to assist volunteers in learning the proper Bookshare process.

    NIMAC Books

    If students are on a 504 and not an IEP can they access books o Bookshare. We are contemplating moving some students who use Bookshare onto a 504. Will this affect their access to Bookshare.
