Notice to Center for Accessible Resource (CAR) Staff and Students
Lane Community College is renewing its commitment to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and of the 1990 Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. The College’s commitment is to make determinations regarding a student’s eligibility for academic adjustments and auxiliary aids in a timely manner and to promptly notify a student if it is determined that additional documentation is needed to support the student’s request for an accommodation or auxiliary aid.
College procedures have been revised to include Eligibility Letters sent to students after determination of their accommodations within ten (10) business days of a student’s meeting with an Accommodation Specialist. That letter will outline the accommodations for which the student is eligible, the resources identified, and any accommodations that were denied.
For more information regarding Section 504 and Title II, I encourage you to visit the web sites maintained
by the Federal government as follows:
It is a policy of the state Board of Education and a priority of the Oregon Department of Education that there will be no discrimination and harassment on the grounds of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, national origin, age, or disability in any educational programs, activities or employment. Inquiries may be directed to the Chief Human Resource Officer, (541) 463-5115.
