    Board Policies and Procedures 4217: Effective Communication - Accessibility

    The Renton School District is committed to ensuring that all District-sponsored programs, activities, meetings, and services will be accessible to individuals with disabilities, including persons who have impaired hearing, vision or speech. The District will strive to make such communications as effective as they would be for persons without disabilities. Such efforts will include furnishing appropriate auxiliary aids and services that would afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, programs, activities, meetings, or services conducted or sponsored by the District, including the District’s website. For purposes of this policy, “auxiliary aids and services” include a wide range of services, devices, technologies, and methods for providing effective communication.

     The Superintendent shall establish procedures to implement this policy, including forms and procedures for families, applicants, participants, and members of the public who may wish to request auxiliary aids and services, ask related questions or raise concerns.

     The effective communication requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (Title II) shall be considered in determining how to meet a student’s communication needs when an IDEA-eligible or a Section 504-eligible student’s disability impacts his/her hearing, vision or speech.
