Annual Registration of All Students Classified as Legally Blind for Procurement of Special Media Materials Produced by the American Printing House for the Blind
The annual American Printing House for the Blind (APH) census program is administered by the New York State Resource Center (NYSRC) located in Batavia, New York. Enclosed are forms and instructions for the annual census of NEW students who are legally blind. Please do not re-register a student if the student has been previously registered. If you are unsure about a student’s registration status, please contact the NYSRC at (585) 343-5384, extension 207. Your cooperation in designating one person for this process is appreciated, and will help to eliminate duplication of registrations.
The census is used to determine New York State’s eligibility for Federal Quota Funds for special media materials produced by APH.* Materials are available to the school the student attends if he/she is enrolled as of January 2, 2012. The attached registration form must be completed and returned no later than March 1, 2012. No registrations can be submitted after that deadline.
*(A catalog of APH materials is available at www.aph.org)
