AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)
The Board of Commissioners of the Bartlett Park District is committed to complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for the purpose of eliminating discrimination against individuals with disabilities and to allow them to fully participate in society. The District supports the ADA Act, which provides exclusion of qualified individuals with a disability from employment, services, programs, or activities of any state or local government, including park districts. The District wishes to have its services, programs and activities available to employees, applicants, participants, beneficiaries, and other interested persons as defined by the Act.
We ask individuals with special needs for inclusion into programs to notify us of their needs at least two weeks in advance. This will allow us time to make sure that proper staffing, equipment, and facilities are in place for a successful and safe program. By informing us early, you are helping us to work toward a smooth inclusion for everyone’s benefit.
The Bartlett Park District has an internal grievance system for prompt and equitable resolution of grievances alleging any action by the Bartlett Park District that would be prohibited by the A.D.A. or the applicable Title II Rules. Grievances should be directed to: The ADA Compliance Officer, Bartlett Park District.
We are committed to the well-being of participants. With proper training and approval, staff are able to dispense certain medications. Please notify the program manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any information you can provide so we can properly plan for your child’s participation. A two week noticed is recommended. Additional paperwork and/or parent meeting may be required.
