Policy & Guidance

ADA Compliance

The Board of Education, Mahoning CTC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or expression, disability, age, religion, or veteran/military status in its programs and activities.

Auxiliary Aids and Services for Students with Disabilities

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, MCCTC does not discriminate against individuals in any protected class, including those individuals with an identified disability. As such, MCCTC shall work to provide persons with disabilities equal opportunity for participation through appropriate auxiliary aids and services.

U.S Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights Guidance:

As required under Section 504 and Title II, post-secondary institutions must offer students with disabilities with appropriate academic modifications, auxiliary aids and services to provide the individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in the institution program (U.S DOE, 2020).

MCCTC is responsible for making appropriate non-personal auxiliary aids available for general classroom use, unless provision of the aid would cause undue burden to the institution. (U.S DOE, 2020).

MCCTC is not responsible for providing personal services relating to individual academic activities. A student with a disability in need of a personal attendant or individually prescribed device holds the responsibility of acquiring and paying for those services (U.S DOE, 2020).

Requesting Accommodations

Any student or staff member wishing to request auxiliary aids or services must submit a request form to the Adult Career Center Business Office along with documented proof of disability (See Request for Auxiliary Aids and Services form for details). Requests will not be granted without sufficient documentation.

Upon receipt of your request, the Student Services Department will review all documentation. All accommodation requests are reviewed to determine if their access will provide the student with a documented disability an equal opportunity to participate in program activities. As such, specific auxiliary aids and service requests are not guaranteed if they are deemed inappropriate for the circumstance in review.

Testing and credentialing agencies operate separately from MCCTC. If the use of auxiliary aids or services are approved through MCCTC, students may still need to request for the use of these accommodations on a Certification Exam through another agency.
