Providing BC Educators with Alternate Format Materials for their Students with Perceptual Disabilities
The Accessible Resource Centre – British Columbia is a BC Ministry of Education funded response to the increasing demand for digital or alternate format alternatives to print in BC classrooms. The goal of ARC-BC is to provide BC students with perceptual disabilities and the educators supporting them with high quality digital alternate format materials based on the BC K-12 curriculum.
ARC-BC is managed by PRCVI (Provincial Resource Centre for the Visually Impaired) and works in consultation and partnership with BC school districts, other alternate format producers, and publishers to provide recommended and requested materials in a timely manner.
Please note there are numerous online training sessions offered to new and returning ARC-BC users! New users are required to complete a training session before downloading digital alternate format files for students. Check out the Training tab on the ARC BC website and click on the View Calendar link to see upcoming training sessions.
Feel free contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you experience any difficulties.
Best wishes for the 2017-2018 school year!
