It is the policy of the Tannehill Board of Education to take reasonable steps to accommodate our patrons and students with disabilities.
Each facility or part of a facility constructed by, on behalf of, or for the use of the district will be designed and constructed in such manner that the facility or part of the facility is readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities. Alterations of facilities that affect or could affect their usability will, to the maximum extent feasible, be altered in such a manner that the altered portion is readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities.
This school district prohibits discrimination in any form against any person, persons, organizations, or other entity. Employment opportunities will not be withheld from any qualified person solely because of a known disability. The school district will make reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified person, unless it can be shown that the accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the operation of this school district. This school district does not require pre-employment medical examinations except for bus drivers.
For the purposes of this policy, the term "reasonable accommodation" shall mean making existing facilities used by employees readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities; and job restructuring, part-time or modified work schedules, reassignment to a vacant position, acquisition or modification of equipment, modifications of examinations and training, the provision of qualified readers, and other similar and reasonable accommodation.
In order to disseminate the content of this policy to all school district employees, the superintendent is directed to post appropriate notices in those common areas where employees may expect to find such notices.
