Rye Bailey, Assistive Technology
May 24, 2012
Rye Bailey has been with APS for 26 years. For the past 13, she has been the technology consultant for visually impaired students needing assistive technology. The Visual Impairment unit has relied on her to evaluate students for equipment, to train teachers and students and to keep current on the new equipment and the upgrades.
In addition, she has been one of two who first trained school personnel on Bookshare, which has brought digitalized books to students with print disabilities to the whole district.
Rye retired last year and is resigning this year after a .25 assignment to develop a natural bird sanctuary in her back yard.
