What is ARC-BC?
ARC-BC (Accessible Resource Centre - British Columbia) is a Ministry of Education funded provincial response to the increasing demand for digital or alternate format alternatives to print for students with perceptual disability in BC classrooms. Educators in all school districts are able to search this online repository or "digital library" to find and download alternate format resources related to the BC curriculum. Production and distribution of the alternate format materials is centrally coordinated and duplication of effort in resource creation is minimized. The goal of ARC-BC is to provide BC educators with access to high-quality digital alternate format materials for their students in a timely manner.
