The form can be accessed from the WCBVI AEM Webpage or by following the link below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will this form be accessible to those using a screen reader?
A. YES! We are very excited that this form will be fully accessible to individuals using screen readers.
Q. Will I be able to submit PII (Personally Identifiable Information) such as student names using this form
A. YES! Microsoft Forms are approved for transmission of personally identifiable information (PII) and are Family Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant.
Q. Does an LEA still need to sign for loan of equipment?
A. An LEA’s signature is not required for all loan items. It will be needed for braillewriters and any AT Loan Items not tied to APH Quota such as braille notetakers.
