    General Supervision at the local district level includes developing procedures, training, and monitoring of implementation related to the Special Factors of AEMs, aka "accessible format for instructional materials" as well as the assistive technology needed to use those materials.

    District procedures should include a data-driven process to determine individual student requirements for AEMs. A simple 4-Step process has been developed (available in District Resources) as a guide to use when developing or revising local procedures.

    Curriculum selection at the local district level should include consideration of accessibility for print and electronic media. Contractual language addressing access to materials should be included for all district purchases (see District Resources). Additionally, the proposed curriculum should be examined for Universal Design for Learning (UDL) components prior to material adoption. Choosing curriculum materials with "built-in" access benefits all students and increases the likelihood of instructional differentiation.

    District support can be obtained from the GaDOE​ as well as the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST). These resources assist districts in fostering programmatic change thGraphic of Tree with simple resources and system change resources for UDL and Curriculum Accessat encourages UDL and the development of expert learners. The following graphic shows how simply districts can provide curriculum access through UDL and create strategic, resourceful, and purposeful learners. It is important that districts take advantage of the readily available resources that provide access to the curriculum for Student Success. Some resources can be provided with little expense or effort, like providing access to gather and respond to information in alternative formats like braille, large print, auditory, and digital formats. Other resources are those that require a commitment that support system change, to support expert learners who are strategic, goal-oriented, and resourceful.
