Americans with Disabilities Act
Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended, and its implementing regulations provide that no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of the disability, be excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any public entity. It is the policy of Lanier Technical College to make reasonable accommodations to facilitate participation of people with disabilities in all programs, activities, and procedures. Reasonable accommodations will be made to the extent that these accommodations do not sacrifice or compromise the integrity of an educational program or lower the academic standards.

An individual with a disability who may require assistance or accommodation in order to participate in or receive the benefit of a service, program or activity, or who desires more information, may contact the Coordinator of Disability Services (ADA) at 770-533-7003.

ADA Grievance Procedure

Lanier Technical College has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for the prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Title II states, in part, "No qualified individual with a disability shall on the basis of the disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any public entity."

A written determination as to the validity of the complaint and a description of the resolution, if any, will be issued by the Coordinator of Disability Services or designee and a copy will be forwarded to the complainant no later than 45 calendar days after receiving the Grievance Form or written complaint.
