Return of Educational Materials and Equipment

All textbooks and specialized aids and equipment loaned through the IERC are the property of the State of Indiana and are to be returned to the IERC when the student no longer needs the item(s).

It is particularly important that books and equipment, not in use, be returned to the IERC so other students may use them. Prompt return of materials will allow the IERC to effectively and efficiently reuse materials for eligible students and keep costs low. Please complete the Inventory Return Form  and enclose in each box returning to the IERC. If a textbook is missing volumes or equipment is missing pieces, please be sure to indicate this on the form. An APH parts list for equipment is available for download at APH Downloadable Parts Lists and Quick Start Sheets

DO NOT PACK boxes over 40 lbs. Boxes weighing more than 40 lbs are too heavy to handle by the postal service, school mail personnel and IERC staff. They also break open during handling and contents may be lost or damaged.

During the spring of each school year, an inventory of all loaned materials is forwarded to each special education planning district/educational agency. At that time, the special education planning district/educational agency must indicate their intention to return or renew specific titles for a registered student. The forms need to be completed and signed by the Authorized Official or Designee and returned to the IERC by April 15th.

Large print or Braille textbooks and specialized equipment may be returned to the IERC via the U.S. Postal Service at no cost if the package is labeled "Free Matter for the Blind". (Please call the IERC at 1-800-833-2198 for return mailing labels or download here )

If a student leaves a school system prior to the end of the school year, the student's materials must be returned to the IERC, not transferred with the student. The Digital Rights Manager (DRM) at the new school corporation will need to request materials for the student.
