Accommodating Individuals With Disabilities
Individuals with disabilities shall be provided an opportunity to
participate in all school sponsored services, programs, or activities
and will not be subject to illegal discrimination. When appropriate, the
District may provide to persons with disabilities aids, benefits, or
services that are separate or different from, but as effective as, those
provided to others.
The District will provide auxiliary aids and services when necessary
to afford individuals with disabilities equal opportunity to participate
in or enjoy the benefits of a service, program, or activity. Each
service, program, or activity operated in existing facilities shall be
readily accessible to, and useable by, individuals with disabilities.
New construction and alterations to facilities existing before
January 26, 1992, will be accessible when viewed in their entirety.
The Superintendent or designee is designated the Title II Coordinator and shall:
- Oversee the District’s compliance efforts, recommend
necessary modifications to
the Board of Education, and maintain the District’s final Title II self
evaluation document and keep it available for public inspection for at
least three years after its completion date.
- Institute plans to make information regarding Title II’s protection available to any interested party.
Individuals with disabilities should notify the Superintendent or
Building Principal if they have a disability that will require special
assistance or services and, if so, what services are required. This
notification should occur as far in advance as possible of the
school-sponsored function, program, or meeting.
Individuals with disabilities may allege a violation of this policy
or federal law by reporting it to the Superintendent of designated Title
II Coordinator, or by filing a grievance under the Uniform Grievance
