Meeting Special Needs
The District welcomes participation in all activities by individuals with disabilities and special needs by working cooperatively with the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association. The District is committed to inclusion by providing public recreation services in the most integrated setting, providing to the maximum extent feasible for interaction between people with and without disabilities. If you or a household member has a special need or request for reasonable accommodation in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, please indicate so at least two weeks in advance of an activity start date. Please understand that failure to provide timely and appropriate notice of a special need and/or request for reasonable accommodation may result in a delay in registration.
