It might be handy to have a screen reader of choice saved on a portable thumb drive so you can plug into various computers.

        Remember everyone that it is against the law for anyone to be able to access this information. It always must to placed in a secured locked place, whether behind a password protected computer or locked room. You cannot carry any student's information in a written notebook or any easily accessible manner. Yes, it must be a pain for you to get into also and that way you know you are not breaking the law and protecting the identity of all your students.
        You will be breaking HIPA, FERPA and a plethora of other laws.
        Be careful out there

          I never carry my laptop from school to school. I do struggle with remembering facts about each student’s team-members and room numbers off the top of my head (especially when my brain is focusing on one student and someone asks me about a different student). I have adapted to my brain fog by carrying two quick and handy non-tech resources. Although I am sighted you could do the same thing in Braille changing the information to something more pertinent to your own needs. 



          1). I keep a thin notebook in the car for quick reference that has the following information: my schedule, a page or two for each student (placed in order of their lessons and color coded by VI teacher) with relevant IEP goals, brief summary of past lesson or ideas for current lesson. I also keep an extra copy of permission slips, and names & contact numbers of teachers-parents-school secretaries, etc. in the notebook. I consult this notebook in the morning, evening, and if necessary, between each lesson. This notebook eliminates the need for me to pull individual files and fish through pages and pages of stuff I don’t need to look at to find an IEP goal or a parent’s phone number.    

          2). I also carry an index card into the school with me containing the bare minimum information necessary (important names, room numbers, length of lesson, and shorthand IEP goals). Not all of us are blessed with good memories and my kids, the schools, and even the city & county are all foreign to me so I’ll need the note card for awhile! It really helps me flow smoothly. In your case you might want to only Braille student ID numbers and birthdates on the index cards. It fits easily into a purse. My note cards are clipped together in order of the lessons and kept with other “quick grab” items. After each lesson I put that note card in the back of the cards and put the front card in my purse for the next lesson.

          I am  a blind TVI. I have a list of my students ID numbers and dates of birth on personal notetaker and computer. Sometimes, the district expects me to have it ready when I contact them. Do you think brilling the information and having the info with me during providing services to the students at school would be another option? I/'m just curious how TVIs have all the info this information when one receives a phone call ferom a district or districts you may be serving students.? Just one final note, due to the population I serve and because I travel between with my materials I am hesitant of taking a laptop or my personal notetaker to scdhool for fear it may be damaged. Just wondering how other teachers deal with this issue. I am aware that many teachers travel with laptops and have one rooom to instruct students. I am not as lucky. Thanks the school and staff work with me to service the students in their respective classrooms  which is valuable as to what information you can pick up and integrate the stdent when activities are occuring.
