Are schools required to pay for assistive technology devices and services?

Answer: 

It is the responsibility of the school district to provide the devices, services, and programs identified in the IEP. The school district may pay for the devices, services, or programs itself, utilize other resources to provide and/or pay for the device and/or services, or cooperatively fund the device(s) and or services. Other resources may include but are not limited to Medicaid, foundations, fraternal organizations, church or social groups, charitable organizations, businesses, and individuals.
