Disability discrimination means denying students with disabilities equal access to educational programs as students who do not have disabilities. This can include:
- Denying admission to a student because of a disability;
- Denying an equal opportunity to participate in the school’s programs;
- Denying reasonable accommodations;
- Subjecting a student with a disability to different standards and requirements;
- Providing a student with a disability an aid or benefit that is not as effective as that provided to others;
- Placing a student with a disability in a different or separate program, unless doing so is necessary to ensure her equal participation in the program.
