Whereas the resolution "Be it
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to assist their faculty to become fully informed about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and about the implications of this Act as it affects community colleges" was passed at the Fall 1993 session, and
Whereas local academic senates have had minimal information provided to them by the Academic Senate to help them in this resolve, and
Whereas ADA issues regarding "reasonable accommodations" at the community college level are becoming an Important and every day part of local faculty activities,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to provide appropriate and useful information addressing "reasonable accommodations" and other related Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) subjects to local senates for dissemination to faculty, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to work collaboratively with their campus Disabled Students Programs and Services faculty to provide an understanding of the ADA rules and regulations.
