Farragut Community School District Accessibility Plan

The Farragut Community School District recognizes that portions of our facilities may be inaccessible to students, staff, parents and community members with disabilities due to the multiple levels within the facilities, in particularly in the elementary wing of the building.

 

During the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year programs and services will be made available to the students, staff, parents and community members in the high school portions of the building by offering programs on the ground floor level the building so that students, staff, parents and community members with disabilities can access those programs.

 

Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year the Farragut Community School District will cease to provide educational programming for any grade levels in the elementary portion of the building. All educational programs and services will be provided for all students PreK-6 at the Marnie Simons Elementary Building  in Hamburg in fully accessible facilities, as part of our Whole-Grade-Sharing arrangement.  Services for students in grades 7-12 will be provided at the  Nishnabotna Jr.-Sr. High School building in Farragut. In addition to the Nishnabotna Jr.-Sr. High and Marnie Simons buildings, we will utilize other fully accessible facilities in other communities that the Farragut Community School District may partner with in the near future.

 

The Farragut Community School District has also begun to utilize the services of Facilities Cost Management  Group to assist the district in developing building plans that will address the educational programming and facility needs of the school district including program accessibility issues. The initial report from Facilities Cost Management Group  is expected to be received by February 15, 2015.

 

 

The Farragut Community School District will begin to review and initiate the necessary steps to make all facilities that will be used beginning with the next school year, 2015-2016, fully accessible to all students, staff, parents and community members with disabilities no later than the first day of classes in August 2015.

 

The Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Tom Hinrichs, and the Farragut Community School District Board of Directors will be responsible for the completion of this Handicapped Accessibility Transition Plan. The Farragut Community School District Board of Directors has retained the services of Facilities Cost Management Group to assist the district in developing appropriate facility plans to address the educational programming needs and the accessibility needs of the district. The Farragut Community School District Board of Directors and Facilities Cost Management Group will work together to develop the plans, request proposals, initiate the necessary bidding processes and finalize the construction and renovation processes that may be required to complete this plan.

 

All handicapped accessibility issues will be appropriately addressed and all educational programs and services will be fully accessible to all students, staff, parents and community members by August 2015, the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.
