• Accommodation of Students with Disabilities Including Those Not Eligible for Special Education Services under the IDEA
    Carl Junction School District seeks to identify, evaluate, and provide free and appropriate educational services in the least restrictive environment to all qualified students with disabilities within the definitions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  No qualified student with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any district program, including nonacademic services and extracurricular activies.
    Students with disabilities may be eligible for accommodation under this policy even though they are not eligible for services pursuant to the IDEA.  The district will initiate a referral if a student requiring accommodation is also believed to be a student with a disability under the IDEA.  Implementation of an IEP in accordance with the IDEA satisfies the district's obligation to provide a free and appropriate education under Section 504.
