Policy 4316 - Accommodating Individuals with Disabilities

Individuals with disabilities shall be provided an opportunity to participate in all school-sponsored services, programs, or activities on a basis equal to those without disabilities and will not be subject to illegal discrimination.

The District may provide auxiliary aids and services where necessary to afford individuals with disabilities equal opportunity to participate in or enjoy the benefits of a service, program, or activity.

The Superintendent is designated the Americans With Disabilities Act, Title II Coordinator and, in that capacity, is directed to:

  1. Oversee the District’s compliance efforts, recommend necessary modifications to the Board, and maintain the District’s final Title II self-evaluation document and keep it available for public inspection for at least three (3) years after its completion date.
  2. Institute plans to make information regarding Title II’s protection available to any interested party.

Individuals (other than students) with disabilities have the obligation to notify the Superintendent or building principal if they have a disability which will require special assistance or services and, if so, what services are required. This notification should occur, as far as possible, before 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, as the Title II Coordinator, or by filing a grievance under the Uniform Grievance Procedure.
