It is the policy of the Nevada Community School District not to discriminate against any
otherwise qualified individual with a disability, solely by reason of his/her disability, in admission
to or access to, or treatment or employment in, any program or activity sponsored by the school
district.

Complaints of discrimination related to disability may be addressed through the District’s Non‐
Discrimination Grievance Procedure. Due process rights of disabled students, parents,
employees, applicants or patrons under Section 504/ADA will be enforced.
The district shall take appropriate steps to ensure that communications with applicants,
participants, and members of the public with disabilities are as effective as communications with
others. To this end, the district shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids and services where
necessary to afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in, and
enjoy the benefits of, a service, program, or activity conducted by the district. In determining
what type of auxiliary aid or service is necessary, the district shall give primary consideration to
the requests of the individual with disabilities.

The district is not required to take any action that it can demonstrate would result in a
fundamental alteration in the nature of a service, program, or activity or in undue financial and
administrative burdens. Any decision that, in compliance with its responsibility to provide
effective communication for individuals with disabilities, would fundamentally alter the service,
program, or activity or unduly burden the district shall be made by the board after considering
all resources available for use in funding and operating the program, services, or activity. The
decision shall be accompanied by a written statement of the reasons for reaching that
conclusion.

The board of directors will designate an individual to serve as the district’s Section 504/ADA
Coordinator and compliance officer and will publicize the name, office address and office
telephone number of the designee.  Inquiries regarding compliance with this policy should be
directed to the district’s Section 504/ADA Coordinator or to the Office of Civil Rights, U.S.
Department of Education, Kansas City, MO, (816) 891‐8026.
