1. Make sure that all buildings are accessible to people with disabilities.
This includes having ramps, elevators, and wheelchair-accessible parking spaces. It's also important to have signage indicating the location of accessible entrances, exits, restrooms, and other facilities.
2. Install ramps and elevators, as needed.
If a building doesn't have a ramp or elevator, it needs to be installed in order to make the building accessible.
3. Place wheelchair-accessible parking spaces near entrances.
Make sure that there are enough wheelchair-accessible parking spaces near the entrance of each building. This will make it easier for people with disabilities to get in and out of the building.
4. Provide signage indicating the location of accessible entrances, exits, restrooms, and other facilities.
This signage is important so that everyone who visits the school knows where they can find accessible facilities.
5. Make sure that paths of travel are clear and unobstructed.
Paths of travel should be clear and unobstructed so that people with disabilities can get around easily. This includes having no stairs or obstacles in the way.
6. Install door hardware that can be opened easily by people with disabilities.
Door hardware should be easy to open for everyone, including people with disabilities. This might mean installing lever-style door handles instead of traditional doorknobs.
7. Ensure that restroom facilities are accessible and meet ADA requirements.
All restroom facilities should be accessible and meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This includes having grab bars, wheelchair-accessible stalls, and proper signage.
8. Provide assistive listening systems in auditoriums and classrooms where needed.
Assistive listening systems can be beneficial for people with hearing impairments. These systems make it easier for people to hear what's being said in a large room by amplifying the sound.
9. Offer Braille signage for visually impaired visitors.
For visitors who are blind or have low vision, it's important to offer Braille signage. This way, they can easily find their way around the school.
10. Train all staff on how to comply with ADA regulations.
All staff members should be trained on how to comply with ADA regulations. This includes understanding the requirements and knowing what needs to be done in order to meet them.
