Accessibility


The San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District provides access to education, employment, services, programs, and activities to persons with disabilities. The SLVUSD community works together to remove any barriers that prevent equal opportunities to community members who have physical or mental disabilities.

We are committed to designing products and services to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Brief Explanation about Section 504 and Title II

Section 504 protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination in programs and activities that receive federal funding. Specifically, Section 504 prohibits school districts from excluding individuals with disabilities from the participation in, or denying such individuals the benefits of, and program or activity. Section 504 also prohibits school districts from subjecting individuals with disabilities to discrimination under any program or activity. Title II extends this prohibition on discrimination established by Section 504 to all activities of state and local governments regardless of whether these entities received federal financial assistance.
