arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Districts shall ensure that applicants and employees with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations consistent with the requirements of Government Code sections 11135 et seq. and 12940(m), section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Such accommodations may include, but are not limited to, job site modifications, job restructuring, part-time work schedules, flexible scheduling, reassignment to a reasonably equivalent vacant position, adaptive equipment, and auxiliary aids such as readers, interpreters, and note takers. Such accommodations may be paid for with funds provided pursuant to article 3 (commencing with section 53030) of this subchapter

(b) If a district established a goal for persons with disabilities prior to the effective date of this subsection and if significant under representation still exists, it shall update that goal, set a new target date for achieving projected representation in the category or categories in question, and concurrently comply with subsections (a)(1), (a)(2) and (b) of section 53006 with respect to persons with disabilities.

(c) Where persons with disabilities are found to be significantly underrepresented, measures required under subsections (a)(1) and (a)(2) of section 53006 shall be implemented concurrently with setting a goal with a target date for achieving projected representation for persons with a disability in each job category where the under representation was found to exist. Goals shall remain in effect only until projected representation has been achieved for that group in the category or categories in question. Until the Chancellor's Office provides data regarding the availability of persons with disabilities by job category, an aggregate labor force availability rate shall be utilized for setting goals for hiring persons with disabilities with respect to the total district work force. The district may also concurrently take other additional steps which take disability into account, so long as such measures are discontinued when projected representation is achieved for persons with disabilities in the category or categories in question.
