The Nevada Community School District does not discriminate in its educational programs and activities on the basis of a student’s disability. It has been determined that your child has a qualifying disability for which accommodations may need to be made to meet his or her individual needs as adequately as the needs of other students. As a parent, you have the right to the following:

  • Participation of your child in District programs and activities, including extracurricular programs
    and activities, to the maximum extent appropriate, free of discrimination based upon the student’s disability and at the same level as students without disabilities
  • Receipt of free educational services to the extent they are provided students without disabilities
  • Receipt of information about your child and your child’s educational programs and activities in
    your native language
  • Notice of identification of your child as having a qualifying disability for which accommodations
    may need to be made and notice prior to evaluation and placement of your child and right to
    periodically request a re‐evaluation of your child
  • Inspect and review your child’s educational records including a right to copy those records for a
    reasonable fee; you also have a right to ask the District to amend your child’s educational
    records if you feel the information in the records is misleading or inaccurate; should the District
    refuse to amend the records, you have a right to a hearing and to place an explanatory letter in
    your child’s file explaining why you feel the records are misleading or inaccurate
  • Hearing before an impartial hearing officer if you disagree with your child’s evaluation or
    placement; you have a right to counsel at the hearing and have the decision of the impartial
    hearing officer reviewed

It is the policy of the Nevada Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color,
national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs),
sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational
