    All students need useful learning materials in order to access, participate, and achieve in the general curriculum. However, the standard learning materials, both print and digital, that are purchased by school districts and used in the classroom are not always accessible or usable by all students. In response to these challenges, Ohio accepted an invitation as one of eight states to participate with the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials, in the AEM Best Practices Cohort project. This panel, featuring national, state, and district representatives, will discuss the issues at both the policy and practical level. The specific work of the districts participating in the Ohio Best Practices Cohort will be featured and the Ohio AT and AEM Center will also introduce supports and resources available to assist all districts in providing AEM and accessible technologies to students.
