Glenbard Township High School District 87
Policy 8:70

Community Relations

Accommodating Individuals With Disabilities

Individuals with disabilities shall be provided an opportunity to participate in all school-sponsored
services, programs, or activities on an equal basis to those without disabilities and will not be subject
to illegal discrimination. Where necessary, the District may provide to persons with disabilities
separate or different aids, benefits, or services from, but as effective as, those provided to others.

The District will 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.

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 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 3 years after its completion date.

        2. 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 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 Complaint
Procedure.
