Lending Library Re-opening

The lending library will be open beginning on May 21st with a few changes to the normal procedure: 

  • Devices will only be shipped out on Thursdays.
  • All loans will need administrator approval since the devices will most likely be used in students' homes. 
  • If you would like, devices can be shipped to a student's home address. Please indicate this address during the check out process. This will require a signature upon delivery from UPS and an adult will need to check the inventory list to make sure all items were received and in good condition. If there is a discrepancy, they can email [email protected] per the loan agreement. 

If you have items you would like to return, you can ship them to:

CCRESA
Attn: Alt+Shift
1013 US Highway 27
St. Johns, MI 48879

Please do not ship back to the Alt+Shift office since we are unable to receive packages at this time. 

Effective implementation of assistive technology begins with a thorough assessment of student needs. A multidisciplinary team, comprised of parents, students and professionals, must focus on student needs, tasks he/she is expected to complete and alignment of tools to support the needs and achievement of tasks and goals.

The Alt+Shift Lending Library contains assistive technology equipment and software that is available to Michigan’s PK-12 public schools and affords districts the opportunity to try assistive technology with a student who has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to assess effectiveness at meeting their needs prior to purchase. Length of loan will vary depending on individual plans for data collection and consideration of assistive technology needs.

Institutes of higher education (IHEs)/educator preparation institutions (EPIs) are able to borrow assistive technology equipment and/or software from the lending library for a period of one week for the purpose of exposing university students entering the educator profession to options for addressing the needs of students with disabilities.
