103.1 Nondiscrimination - Qualified Student
with Disabilities Grievance Process
The school district shall provide to each qualified student with a disability enrolled in the district, without cost to the student or parent/guardian, a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). This includes provision of education and related aids, services, or accommodations which are needed to afford each qualified student with a disability equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits from educational programs and extracurricular activities without discrimination, to the same extent as each student without a disability, consistent with federal and state laws and regulations.
Disability discrimination – a denial, based on disability, of education and related aids, services or accommodations which are needed to afford each qualified student with a disability equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits from educational programs and extracurricular activities. Examples of the types of discrimination prohibited include denying a qualified handicapped student, solely on the basis of disability, an equal opportunity to access educational programs and facilities and the denial of a free appropriate public education for elementary and secondary students.
Disability harassment – intimidation or abusive behavior toward a student based on disability that creates a hostile environment by interfering with or denying a student’s participation in or receipt of benefits, services, or opportunities in the school’s educational programs, nonacademic services, or extracurricular activities. Examples of the types of harassment prohibited include repeatedly belittling and criticizing a student for using accommodations in class and repeatedly taunting and belittling a student with a disability through mocking and intimidation.Read the policy, procedures and who to contact (Section 504 Coordinators).
