It is the policy of the District School Board of Pasco County, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), to guarantee that qualified individuals with disabilities have the same opportunities and are not discriminated against in regard to job application procedures, hiring, advancement, discharge, compensation, job training, or other terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. The District will provide reasonable accommodation(s) to a qualified individual, when necessary, to enable the individual to perform the essential functions of the position or during the application process, if the accommodation does not impose an undue hardship on the operation of the District’s business.
Employees and applicants requesting a reasonable accommodation are required to submit a Medical Certification of ADA Qualifying Impairment completed by their Health Care Provider to the Equity Manager, Office for Employee Relations. The Equity Manager will review all relevant information provided by the Health Care Provider as well as the employee’s job duties or applicant requirements to identify and recommend reasonable accommodations that can be provided.
Please note: The District may require additional medical information in order to determine if an employee or applicant has an impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. If additional information is required, you will be required to complete and sign an Authorization for the Release of Medical Information. Be aware that failure to provide such authorization to the District may result in a denial of your request for reasonable accommodation.
Reasonable accommodations are available for persons with disabilities to complete the application and/or interview process. Applicants/individuals with disabilities requesting accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may contact the Equity Manager at 813-794-2679 for assistance.
