Policy 802.05: Buildings & Sites Adaptation for Persons with Disabilities

Original Adopted Date: 02/1/2010 | Last Reviewed Date: 6/19/2023

The board recognizes the need for access to its buildings and sites by persons with disabilities.  School district buildings and sites currently in use will be altered to be accessible to persons with disabilities unless the alteration would cause an undue hardship for the school district.  Renovated and new buildings and sites will be accessible to persons with disabilities.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent, upon board approval, to take the necessary action to ensure school district buildings and sites are accessible to persons with disabilities.

NOTE:  This policy reflects disability law as it relates to physical facilities.  School districts are required to have a physical facilities transition plan that outlines when physical facilities will become accessible to persons with disabilities.
