AUDIO AND DIGITIZED TEXT FOR REQUIRED READINGS
In conjunction with the MAISD and other source providers such as Bookshare, we are able to provide students with an IEP or 504 options for digitized reading materials. This provides students with the opportunity to use audio devices such as MP3 players, phones or other assistive technology such as screen readers to access the printed word.
If your student could benefit from these services, please speak with the classroom teacher, a counselor or Mrs. Vincent in the LMC (ext. 3772).
The mission off the Library Media Center is to support the curriculum of Reeths-Puffer High School by providing access to quality and appropriate information resources, to ensure that all students and staff are efficient and effective users and evaluators of ideas and information, and to encourage a life-long enjoyment of reading.
