Disability Accommodation Policy and Procedure
Hollywood Education Institute aims to help students achieve their academic goals and succeed in their classes who may have special needs.
As stated in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which states that “an individual with a disability is defined as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered”.
In seeking to provide support and equal opportunities for students who request disability accommodations, students must submit the completed Disability Accommodation Request Form and documentation of the disability to the Administrative Manager or any Administrative Staff via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hollywood Education Institute will notify within one month of the decision of accommodations.
Hollywood Education Institute will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified disabled students based on these following:
The form must be completed and signed by a practitioner, certified, or licensed professional only
Since disabilities often vary in degree and impact, reasonable accommodations will be made on an individual basis. The Management Team or any other authorized person will review the request and make a decision on how to accommodate the student needs. Students will be notified of these accommodations within fourteen (14) business days.
Hollywood Education Institute is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of all student records related to requests for disability accommodations.
