  • The Virginia Department of Education developed a set of guidelines that permits any Virginia school division that has provided a "child with a disability" with an "assistive technology device" to transfer that device to another school division or a state agency that will be serving the child, or to the student or the student's parent. The permissive transfer may occur when the student exits the school division and the device continues to be necessary to the student's functional capabilities. The guidelines can be found at the VDOE Assistive Technology page.
  • Here is the link to the Word document:  Guidelines for School Division Transfer of Assistive Technology Devices. These guidelines outline requirements and best practices related to the transfer of assistive technology between two parties. This document provides an overview of the requirements related to the transfer of assistive technology as well as sample forms for use when developing transfer agreements.
