Notice to Individuals with Disabilities and Parents
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal financial assistance. Section 504/ADA defines a person with a disability as anyone who: "Has mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more of a person's major life activities; has a record of a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; or is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities." The school has the responsibility to provide adjustments, modifications and provide necessary services to eligible individuals with disabilities. USD 329 Mill Creek Valley acknowledges its responsibility under section 504/ADA to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding its personnel and students. No discrimination against any person with a disability shall knowingly be permitted in any program or practice in the school district. Any person having inquiries concerning the school's compliance with the regulations implementing Title VI, Title IX, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 is directed to contact the Superintendent, who has been designated by the school to coordinate efforts to comply with the regulations regarding nondiscrimination, or to the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education.
