Johnson County Schools – non-descrimination notice

THE JOHNSON COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the programs and activities which it operates pursuant to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Public Law 101 – 336. If you need provisions to attend any school function, please notify the building principal or Paula Norton, ADA Coordinator at (423) 727-2640.

NON-DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF HANDICAP OR DISABILITY

NON-DISCRIMINATION

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires school districts to have officially adopted policy statements of nondiscrimination on the basis of sex, handicap, national origin and race.

“It is the policy of the Johnson County School System not to discriminate on the basis of sex, race, national origin, creed, age, marital status, or disability in its educational programs, activities or employment policies as required by Title VI and VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

It is also the policy of this district that the curriculum materials utilized reflect the cultural and racial diversity present in the United States and the variety of careers, roles and life-styles open to women as well as men in our society. One of the objectives of the total curriculum and teaching strategies is to reduce stereotyping and to eliminate bias on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, religion, and disability. The curriculum should foster respect and appreciation for cultural diversity found in our country and an awareness of the rights, duties, and responsibilities of each individual as a member of a pluralistic society.”

The parent shall be notified of and invited to attend such conferences. The persons attending the conference shall draw upon and carefully consider information from a variety of sources, including aptitude and achievement tests, teacher recommendations, physical condition, social or cultural background, and adaptive behavior and shall document in writing that this has been done.

Tests and other evaluation materials and the administration of such tests and evaluation materials shall meet the requirements of the regulations enacted pursuant to Section 504.

The grievance procedure set out above shall serve as the system of procedural safeguards regarding the identification, evaluation or education placement of persons who, because of handicap, need or are believed to need special instruction or related services. In such cases, the parents or guardian of any student shall be given opportunity to examine relevant records of the student upon request, and shall be given the opportunity to participate in the hearing.

NOTICE

A copy of 34 C.F.R. Part 104 Subpart D regulations or, in lieu thereof, other materials which notify the recipient of the Board’s duties under C.F.R.
