Non-Discrimination of Protected Handicapped Students - Annual Notice To Parents

Middle School Handbook

In compliance with state and federal law, the Souderton Area School District will ensure that all district programs and practices are free from discrimination against all qualified students with disabilities. The District will provide to each qualified student with a disability without discrimination or costs 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. A qualified student with a disability is a school-age child who has a physical or mental disability which substantially limits or prohibits participation in or access to an aspect of the district’s educational programs, nonacademic services or extracurricular activities

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

For further information on the evaluation procedures and provision of services to qualified students with disabilities, contact the Director of Pupil Services at 760 Lower Road, Souderton, Pennsylvania, 18964, or by telephone at 215-723-6061.
