NOTICE UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT

 

In accordance with the requirements of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the Alameda Unified School District will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities. The District shall provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services when necessary to afford individuals with disabilities equal opportunity to participate in or enjoy the benefits of a service, program, or activity. These aids and services may include, but are not limited to, qualified interpreters or readers, assistive listening devices, Communication Accessed Realtime Translation services, assistive technologies or other modifications to increase accessibility to district and school web sites, note takers, written materials, taped text, and Braille or large-print materials.

 

Alameda Unified School District will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy.

 

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of the District, should contact the District’s ADA Coordinator, Kerri Lonergan at 2060 Challenger Drive, Alameda, CA 94501, 510-337-7101, klongeran@alamedaunified.org as soon as possible but no later than 10 business days before the scheduled event.

 

The ADA does not require the Alameda Unified School District to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden. Complaints that a program, service, or activity of Alameda Unified School District is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be made pursuant to the Alameda Unified School District’s Uniform Complaint Procedure. See Board Policy 1312.3 and Administrative Regulation 1312.3.
