Americans with Disabilities Act

The Finley School District complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Public Law 101-336 (ADA), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.  The ADA, as applied to school districts, requires that no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of a disability, be denied the benefits of school district services, programs, or activities.

Accordingly, the Finley School District will not refuse to allow a person with a disability to participate in a school district service, program or activity simply because the person has a disability.

The Finley School District will not provide services or benefits to individuals with disabilities through programs that are separate or different, unless the separate programs are necessary to ensure that the benefits and services are equally effective.

The Finley School District will not subject individuals with disabilities to discrimination in employment under any service, program or activity conducted by the school district.

The Finley School District will take appropriate steps to ensure that communications with applicants, participants, and members of the public with disabilities are as effective as communications with others.

The Finley School District will make reasonable accommodations in policies, practices or procedures when necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability, unless a fundamental alteration in a school district program would result.

The Finley School District will operate its programs so that, when viewed in their entirety, they are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

For further information:  In accordance with Section 35.106 of the ADA’s Title Two Regulations, all applicants, participants, beneficiaries and other interested persons are advised that further information may be obtained from the school district and from the Office on the Americans with Disabilities Act, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. 20035-6118 (202) 514-0301 (Voice) or (202) 514-0381 (TDD).  Alternative formats of this notice are available upon request.
