Public Attendance at School Events - Handicapped Accessibility Policy

 

Public Attendance at School Events – Handicapped Accessibility


The Board of Education welcomes and encourages members of the community to attend athletic and other public events held by the schools in the District. No qualified person with a disability will, because the District's facilities are inaccessible to or unusable by persons with disabilities, be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity to which Section 504/ADA applies. For facilities constructed or altered after June 3, 1977, the District will comply with applicable accessibility standards. For those existing facilities constructed prior to June 3, 1977, the District is committed to operating its programs and activities so that they are readily accessible to persons with disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to, providing accommodations to parents with disabilities who desire access to their child's educational program or meetings pertinent thereto.


Accessible seating or seating areas are available at all district utilized athletic fields or gymnasiums as well as the district auditorium. Please look for the seating markers/signage or ask an administrator or staff member on duty at the event for assistance.


In accordance with State and Federal law, the District will provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities who wish to attend and/or participate in school events.


Such individuals should notify the person in charge of the event if they require any additional  reasonable accommodation(s).
