About ADA Accommodations

The Albuquerque Public Schools does not discriminate in the terms and conditions of employment on the basis of an individual’s disability. It is prerogative of the employer however, to determine an employee’s assignment and location. Accessibility may be taken into account in determining an individual’s assignment and/or location.

“Reasonable accommodation” for employees may include, but not limited to, the following where such would not impose an undue hardship:

  1. Providing physically accessible facilities needed by employees;
  2. Restructuring jobs;
  3. Acquiring or modifying equipment or devices;
  4. Providing assistance for certain non-essential job functions;

Employee grievances regarding disability issues are to be filed in writing, including the specific facts of the grievance and the alleged discriminatory act, with the Section 504Compliance Officer/Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator. Concerns that cannot be resolved informally will be addressed through an informal hearing conducted by the Superintendent’s designee. A grievant may appeal the outcome of that hearing to the Superintendent. At any time, a complaint may also be filed with the Office for Civil Rights or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission without reprisal by the Board or any of its employees or agents.

Any questions concerning employee disability issues should be addressed to the employee’s site administrator or the District Compliance Office/Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator (505) 855-9852.
