Schools have responsibilities to provide accommodations, modifications and necessary services for eligible individuals with disabilities.
USD #263 acknowledges its responsibility under Section 504/ADA and its amendments to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding students, patrons and personnel. No discrimination against any person with a disability shall knowingly be permitted in any program or practice within USD #263.
