CORRECTING COMPLIANCE ISSUES

WILL BE ON MAIN CAMPUSES
AUDIT REPORTS TO GIVE FACILITIES PERSONNEL A GAME PLAN FOR SPENDING THE ALLOCATED GRANT MONIES.
REMEDIATION AUDITS WILL USE LANGUAGE IN 2010 STANDARD SPECIFICALLY FOR REMEDIATION PROJECTS BECAUSE THE NEW LAW SPELLS OUT SPECIFIC BREAKS AND SAFE HARBOR REQUIREMENTS FOR TITLE ll FACILITIES
Title II requires programs, services or activities to be readily accessible when viewed in their entirety; it also allows publicly owned colleges and universities to make programs and activities available to HC students without extensive retrofitting of their existing buildings by offering programs through alternative methods.
SCHOOLS DON’T HAVE TO BRING THEIR BUILDINGS INTO ADA COMPLIANCE,
THEY JUST CAN’T OFFER PROGRAMS THAT ENROLL HC STUDENTS THERE.
Alternative Method Option ADAAG gives to colleges and universities under
PREVIOUS REMEDIATION EFFORTS WERE DONE UNDER SCOPING FOR 28 CFR PART 36 AND NOT TITLE ll
WHICH USES 28 CFR 35
The concept of "program accessibility" was first used in the section 504 regulation adopted by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare for its federally assisted programs and activities in 1977. It allowed recipients to make their federally assisted programs and activities available to individuals with disabilities without extensive retrofitting of their existing buildings and facilities, by offering those programs through alternative methods.
Program accessibility has proven to be a useful approach and was adopted in the regulations issued for programs and activities conducted by Federal Executive agencies. The Act provides that the concept of program access will continue to apply with respect to facilities now in existence, because the cost of retrofitting existing facilities is often prohibitive.
Section 35.150 requires that each service, program, or activity conducted by a public entity, when viewed in its entirety, be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
Campus Accessibility Guide
Helps ADA committees and facilities personnel understand requirements of Title I, II, & III as they are related to their campus and also better understand the remediation steps and recommendations provided in Campus Audit Reports
Basic Program Accessibility Components
The 2010 Standard mirrors the ANSI text, details and numbering system. Much of the new requirements in the 2010 Standard were already required in ANSI 2003. There are still slight differences in many sections so careful sections and highlighting of differences is recommended.
Combines both ADA and ABA scoping into one code book with a technical requirements section referenced by both.
An independent Federal Agency
Developed and Updated the new 2010 Standard
This means TBR designers may begin using the 2010 standards March 15, 2011 but are required to on all projects pulling permits after March 15, 2012.
From now until March 15 , 2011 use the current TBR code - IBC Chapter 11 with ANSI 2003.
After March 15, 2011 use the 2010 Standard for projects designed for TBR
TBR WILL BE PROVIDING MORE INFO ON CODE CHANGES AND EFFECTIVE DATES BOTH ON ITS WEB SITE AND AT THE 2011 FACILITIES COORDINATOR MEETING
