Los Angeles Valley College will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all College programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in College facilities, even where pets are generally prohibited. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a College program, service, or activity, should contact the office of Sarah Song, ADA Coordinator as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
The ADA does not require the College to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
The College will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
