Campus Access (aka Persons with Disabilities and/or Accessibility Issues)

LONG BEACH UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT DISABILITY ACCESS PROCEDURE

The District is committed to providing students with disabilities access to classes in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and applicable state laws. Schools within the District will implement the following procedure to provide their students with disabilities or mobility impairments, that prevent their accessing classrooms, events, activities, and services occurring at school, access thereto. All such activities are available to all parents, guardians, and students on each individual school's website.

If you are a parent of a student, or a student with mobility impairment or other health-related disability that limits mobility, who encounters a barrier to an assigned classroom, you should notify the student's counselor or the Vice Principal of the School to arrange campus or classroom access.

Please note that classes will not be relocated if an alternate section of the class in question is also offered at accessible locations. Students cannot request specific classrooms. All relocation requests are handled on a case-by-case basis, but the School will make every effort to consider and respond to such requests promptly. The appeal of any access or relocation determination will be made pursuant to the District's Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP).

During IEP and 504 meetings involving students with mobility impairments, team members will schedule classes inaccessible locations.

State and Federal law provide that the District may not discriminate against a student with a disability, deny a qualified student with a disability the opportunity to participate in or to benefit from an aid, benefit, or service, or otherwise limit a student with a disability in the enjoyment of any right, privilege, advantage, or opportunity enjoyed by others receiving an aid, benefit, or service. This classroom relocation procedure presumes that qualified students with disabilities may participate in any such activity or program. This procedure recognizes that, at times, it may be necessary to convene a meeting of a student's Section 504 or IEP team to consider if and how the student will participate in the activities and programs pursuant to applicable law.
