Making a Request
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a District program, service, or activity, should contact the office responsible for sponsoring the event as soon as possible utilizing the appropriate District administrative procedure. Requests should be made as soon as an individual identifies the need for accommodation, as requests for accommodation that are made untimely may be determined to be unreasonable depending on the circumstances.
The ADA does not require the District to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
The District 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.
Concerns that a District program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the District's ADA Compliance Officer in the Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Nicolás Crisosto, Los Angeles Community College District, 770 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90017, by calling (213) 891-2315 and leaving a voicemail, or by emailing Disability Access.
Brittany Grice, the District's Section 504 and ADA Compliance Administrator, has been designated to coordinate compliance with the non-discrimination requirements contained in the Department of Justice regulations implementing Subtitle A of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. 12131), which prohibits discrimination on the basis on disability by public agencies and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act as well as California disability laws and regulations.
