Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purposes of the Educational Technology, Media, and Materials for Individuals with Disabilities Program 1 are to improve results for children with disabilities by: (1) Promoting the development, demonstration, and use of technology; (2) supporting educational media activities designed to be of educational value in the classroom for students with disabilities; (3) providing support for captioning and video description that is appropriate for use in the classroom; and (4) providing accessible educational materials to students with disabilities in a timely manner. Priority: In accordance with 34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(v), this priority is from 1 This program was formerly called ‘‘Technology and Media Services for Individuals with Disabilities.’’ The Department has changed the name to Educational Technology, Media, and Materials for Individuals with Disabilities and updated the purposes of the program to more clearly convey that the program includes accessible educational materials. The program’s activities and statutory authorization (20 U.S.C. 1474) remain unchanged. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:53 May 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 allowable activities specified in the statute (see sections 674 and 681(d) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) (20 U.S.C. 1400 et seq.)). Absolute Priority: For FY 2014 and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applicants from this competition, this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3), we consider only applications that meet this priority. This priority is: Educational Technology, Media, and Materials for Individuals with Disabilities—National Center on Accessible Educational Materials for Learning. Background: The purpose of this priority is to fund a cooperative agreement to establish and operate a National Center on Accessible Educational Materials for Learning (Center). The Center will work with State educational agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and other stakeholders to improve the quality, availability, and timely delivery of accessible educational materials and technologies for use by infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities (hereafter referred to as ‘‘children with disabilities’’ and includes children who are blind or other persons with print disabilities). The Center’s efforts will help support equitable opportunities for children with disabilities to: (1) Participate in high-quality early learning programs, (2) be involved in and progress in the general education curriculum, (3) prepare to meet collegeand career-ready standards, (4) participate in assessments, and (5) transition to postsecondary education and the workforce. The Center will achieve these results by: (1) Providing information to OSEP on how the technical specifications of the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standards (NIMAS) can be improved to ensure digital files meet the same standard and can be easily converted into whatever accessible format meets the unique needs of children who are blind or other persons with print disabilities; (2) providing technical assistance (TA) to build the capacity of stakeholders to design, develop, procure, and maintain technologies for use in schools and workplaces that conform to robust accessibility standards and, as appropriate, NIMAS; (3) providing TA to SEAs, LEAs, and other stakeholders to ensure the adoption and implementation of efficient, effective, and unified distribution systems or to ensure the improvement of existing systems for the timely delivery of PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 accessible educational materials and technologies to children with disabilities, including those children with disabilities who may be underserved; 2 and (4) providing TA to postsecondary education and workforce development agencies or offices to ensure the availability and use of accessible educational materials and technologies by children with disabilities transitioning to postsecondary education and the workforce. Under section 612(a)(1) of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), States must ensure that a free appropriate public education (FAPE) be made available to all children with disabilities.3 IDEA also requires that all children with disabilities are included in all general State and districtwide assessment programs (see section 612(a)(16)). Accessible educational materials and technologies enable children with disabilities to have access to, and be involved in and make progress in, the general education curriculum (or for a preschool child, to participate in appropriate activities) and assessments. The 2004 amendments to IDEA required the Secretary to establish, and States to adopt, the NIMAS to improve the timely production and dissemination of educational materials in accessible formats for students who are blind or other persons with print disabilities (see sections 612(a)(23) and 674(e) of IDEA). The NIMAS ensures that digital files meet a consistent standard and can be easily converted into whatever accessible format meets the unique needs of these students. In addition, SEAs and LEAs are responsible for ensuring that children with disabilities who need instructional materials in accessible formats but are not included under the definition of blind or other persons with print disabilities, or who need materials that cannot be produced from NIMAS files, also receive those instructional materials in a timely manner (34 CFR 300.172(b)(3) and 300.210(b)(3)). To support SEAs’ and LEAs’ efficient and timely distribution of accessible materials, OSEP established the National Instructional Materials Access 2 As used in this priority and in a manner consistent with 20 U.S.C. 7255(a) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended, ‘‘underserved populations’’ include disadvantaged, illiterate, limited English proficient populations, and individuals with disabilities. 3 FAPE involves providing special education, related services, and supplementary aides and services, including educational materials in accessible formats for children with disabilities who are blind or other persons with print disabilities who are eligible for services under Part B of IDEA.
