Accessible Instructional Materials Library Forms
It is suggested that all forms be copied for your files prior to submitting them to the AIM Library for you records in case of later verification.
There is no longer a separate student registration form. The new Assurances Form, that is due each school year by November 30th, will also serve as the document for student registration.
As part of the student registration and eligibility process, the Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) Library requires the assurance that appropriate assessments, when applicable, current medical records, and a written education plan are on file where the student attends school. The actual assessments, reports and plans are not to be submitted to the Accessible Instructional Materials Library.
Original Assurance Forms (faxes and copies will not be accepted) need to be mailed, no later than November each school year to the AIM Library:
Massachusetts Accessible Instructional Materials Library
