Accessibility by Disabled Persons

Readily accessible programs—

Programs or activities shall be operated in a manner which ensures that, when viewed in their entirety, they are readily accessible to disabled persons. The District is not, however, required to make each existing facility or every part of a facility accessible to and usable by disabled persons.

34 CFR § 104.22(a)


Compliance with these requirements may be achieved by:

  1. Redesigning equipment.
  2. Reassigning classes or other services to accessible buildings.
  3. Assigning aides to qualified disabled persons.
  4. Home visits.
  5. Delivery of health, welfare, or other social services at alternate accessible sites.
  6. Alteration of existing facilities.
  7. Constructing new facilities in conformance with 34 CFR § 104.23.
  8. Any other methods that would result in making programs and activities accessible to disabled persons.

Structural changes in existing facilities need not be made when other methods will achieve compliance with the handicap requirements. In choosing among available alternatives for meeting these requirements, the Board shall give priority to methods that offer programs and activities to handicapped persons in the most integrated setting appropriate.

34 CFR § 104.22(b)


The District shall adopt and implement procedures to ensure that interested persons, including those with impaired vision or hearing, can obtain information as to the existence and location of services, activities, and facilities that are accessible to and usable by disabled persons.

34 CFR § 104.22(f)
