Because we receive federal and state funding we are required to provide certain kinds of documentation. Offering these resources is more than just a requirement, it is a best practice that ensures transparency and equity. These resources also appear throughout our site. This is merely a list for convenience.
Reporting Requirements for Public Projects
Accommodations and Americans With Disabilities Act
Pursuant to the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and ADA Amendments Act of 2008, Pikes Peak Community College’s Human Resource Services (HRS) has a prescribed protocol for in-taking and processing all employment related ADA accommodation requests for regular and student employees. A Reasonable Accommodation Panel is charged with reviewing all documentation submitted by the requestor, conducting an in-person interactive session with the requestor, and making a disposition recommendation to the Executive Director of HRS who ultimately makes the final determination.
Any and all allegations of ADA discrimination (whether employment or educational) are required to be reported to the Executive Director of HRS. The Executive Director of HRS, as the institution’s EEOC/ADA Officer, is responsible for investigating all claims of discrimination by students and employees of the College.
The college also has an Access Committee comprised of various members (both abled and differently-abled) of the college community. The Committee meets to discuss and implement strategies for each campus that help make PPCC more accessible for students, staff and campus visitors.
