Employee Request for Accommodation
KCTCS supports equal opportunity in employment and is committed to full compliance
with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Reasonable accommodations are specific
to job duties and individual circumstances. Individuals in need of accommodation are
encouraged to contact their local human resources leaders and, if necessary, complete
the Accommodation Request Form and/or the Medical Form.
In addition to the ADA process, KCTCS enacted other policies and procedures to guide supervisors and employees in providing accommodations for other life circumstances:
If you are one of your reports needs an accommodation to address either of these issues, please contact your local human resources leader or a member of DOI listed in the contact section.
Student Request for Accommodations
Students with documented disabilities requiring individualized accommodations should contact the Disability Resource Coordinator at their Home College. Once the student has contacted the Disability Resource Coordinator at the Home College, that Coordinator will communicate with the student's instructors and/or the Disability Resource Coordinator at the Delivering College in order to coordinate and/or provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations to the student.

Pregnant & Parenting Procedures for Students
Title IX is a federal civil rights law that protects students in all of the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs or activities of schools. This includes prohibiting discrimination against pregnant and parenting students.
Title IX protects pregnant and parenting students who are experiencing medical complications due to their pregnancy; childbirth; false pregnancy; termination of pregnancy; recovery from any of these conditions; lactation; or parenting a sick child that has doctors' appointments or that is in the hospital.
The law states that a school is required to make reasonable accommodations for a student experiencing these circumstances, including:
- Giving a student a reasonable amount of time to make up missed assignments,
- Not penalizing the student for being absent from class(es), and
- Allowing the student to re-enter the school at the same academic status before a leave began.
Title IX pregnant & parenting cases are not retroactive. A school must be aware of a situation in order to respond to it. Documentation is required.
If you are experiencing medical complications due to pregnancy; childbirth; false pregnancy; termination of pregnancy; recovery from any of these conditions; lactation; or parenting a sick child that has doctors' appointments or that is in the hospital, you need to contact your school's Title IX coordinator (a list contained in the linked procedure) to discuss a possible Title IX accommodation.
