The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides federal civil rights protection to people who are considered disabled.
Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is a priority of Coastal Alabama Community College. To ensure institutional compliance, the College administration has:
- appointed one individual to oversee compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act;
- required comprehensive self-evaluation of all programs and activities of the institution, including employment;
- provided a committee to assist the ADA Coordinator in his/her functions in preparation of the self-evaluation and implementation of a plan of compliance;
- provided funding for the activities of the ADA Coordinator and for reasonable accommodations of auxiliary aids and services;
- prepared, published, and distributed policy statements and procedures; and,
- initiated additional activities deemed necessary by the administration to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, unless these are deemed to pose an undue burden or would result in a fundamental alteration of programs of the institution.
Further, the administration solicits the involvement of the community and individuals with disabilities in conducting the self-evaluation and in setting priorities for compliance.
Questions or concerns regarding this Act should be directed tothe appropriate ADA Accommodations Coordinator.
