Welcome back to school!

We hope you had a wonderful relaxing summer.

A few news items~

1. AIM Library registration has changed. There is no longer a Student Registration Form. It has been combined with the Assurances Form(AF) so only 1 piece of paper needs to be submitted each school year. AFs are due every school year by November 30th. That allows you 60 days to request materials for this school year, if we have an AF on file from last year, as after November 30 we will start to hold requests until we have a current AF on file.

2. Parent Consent Forms only need to be submitted once to AIM Library and are valid until the student is 18. Over 18 Consent Forms will be emailed to TVI’s with students in that age bracket. We suggest you have blank AF’s and parent consents on hand as you participate in IEP meetings to save time.

3. APH Federal Quota Census will begin in January 2019. The census is done every year and is a separate process from AIM Library Registration. Notice will be sent after holiday break with details about Federal Quota Census.

4. 2018-2019 MCAS for grades 3-8 will only be offered in the new braille code, Unified English Braille (UEB). EBAE with Nemeth for MCAS high school tests. Districts should ensure that students who utilize braille in grades 3-8 are being instructed in the new braille code.
