Disability Services

The Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools Adult Workforce Development Center (AWDC) is commmitted to providing an accessible environment for all its students in both academic and non-academic programs as required by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Students with disabilities have the right to:

- Access courses, programs, services, activities and facilities.
- Work, learn, and receive reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids and services.
- Confidentiality about their disability, except as disclosures are required/permitted by law.

Procedures for Requesting Reasonable Accommodations

It is the responsibility of the student to submit all necessary documentation of a disability for review prior to receiving any accommodations. The OTC requires documentation be comprehensive and reflective of the student's current functioning.

1. Provide documentation - The AWDC accepts documentation from treating professionals as valid if the date of the service/testing is within three to five years from the time of admission into the program. A copy of the student's high school IEP or 504 Transition plan can prove helpful. Student Services will review the documentation and identify, in consultation with the student, on a case-by-case basis, the range of reasonable accommodations.

2. Request accommodation - The student must meet with the Career Counselor to request an accommodation. Services and accommodations will not be offered until a student makes this request and attends this meeting. It is in the student's best interest to make this request as early as possible.

3. Receive a letter of accommodation - Once the request is received, and analyzed with the student, the Career Counselor will generate a letter/for to be provided the Student's educators outlining what reasonable accommodation(s) has/have been determined to be appropriate.

4. Follow up with educators - It is important that the student communicate with his/her instructors about the specifics of his/her accommodations. Examples might include determining arrangements for extended time testinng and/or testing in a private testing area, etc.


5. Contact Student Services for further assistance - If the accommodation(s) a student is currently receiving should be revisited, or should a student encounter resistance to the accommodations for which they are eligible, he/she should contact the Student Services Career Counselor.


Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools' officers, agents, and financial aid professionals will act, speak, and behave with students, co-workers and the public in a manner that exemplify the school's policies of inclusion, fairness, and honesty.


Any student who is not in agreement with the reasonable accommodations they are afforded may request an informal review by the Adult Workforce Development Center Director or utilize the Section 504 Grievance procedure.
