Protected Disabled Students

  • Protected Disabled Students

    In compliance with state and federal law, Conestoga Valley will provide to each protected disabled student without discrimination or cost to the student or family, those related aids, services, or accommodations which are needed to provide equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits of the school program and extracurricular activities to the maximum extent appropriate to the student’s abilities.  In order to qualify as a protected disabled student the child must be an age at which public education is offered in the district and have a physical or mental disability, which substantially limits or prohibits participation in or access to an aspect of the school program.

    These services and protections for “protected disabled students” are distinct from those applicable to all eligible or exceptional students enrolled (or seeking enrollment) in special education programs.
