Policies and Procedures to Ensure Accommodations and Maintain Fair and Accessible Processes
ADA accommodations and Title IX requirements intersect in several ways that can often be overlooked. Institutions have a responsibility to ensure accessible and fair investigations and hearings. Accommodations must be considered for all parties involved in the process from complainants and respondents to potentials witnesses.
Gain the confidence to accurately assess your current policies and procedures, train your faculty and staff with systemic “gatekeeper” training, and proactively incorporate ADA accommodations and standards into the Title IX process to ensure you meet the needs of your students.
Our expert presenters will provide you with the critical steps and compliant processes needed to support students with disabilities who are impacted by sexual misconduct or gender-based issues and need accommodations. Foster an educational environment and judicial process that is affirming and supportive for ALL members of the community and upholds the mission of your institution.
As a result of this online training experience, you will be able to:
- Apply the necessary knowledge to comply with all the federal laws dealing with accessibility including Title II, Title IX, and others – avoid a legal quagmire caused by confusion and lack of confidence in your policies and procedures.
- Create policies and procedures to protect your institution's mission and ensure a healthy, supportive learning community – provide appropriate options that will engage and support students experiencing sexual misconduct who need accommodations.
- Provide faculty and staff with systemic “gatekeeper” training - help them respond and appropriately refer students who report concerns and need ADA accommodations and support resources.
- Proactively incorporate ADA standards into Title IX accommodation processes for all participants, from complainants to witnesses to respondents – foster an affirming and supportive environment for all students so that you can support their development as members of the campus community.
