Reasonable Accommodations

PUSD Expanded Learning welcomes and celebrates students of all backgrounds and ability levels, as we know that having a dynamic and diverse group of students is what makes PUSD schools special. Students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or Section 504 Accommodation Plans (504's) are encouraged to enroll in expanded learning, including after-school programming. Outside of the school day, PUSD is required to provide reasonable accommodations to support students with disabilities.

A requested accommodation is reasonable if it:

  • Maintains safe learning environments for all participants;
  • Does not fundamentally alter the nature of the goals of the program;
  • Still enables program staff to perform their core functions;
  • Does not create an undue burden.

If a requested accommodation is determined to be unreasonable, program staff will notify the parent/guardian or adult student in writing within 14 days of the request.

The Expanded Learning Program is able to implement many types of common accommodations. Typical Examples include:

  • Additional time to complete activities
  • Sensory Tools/fidgets/manipulatives
  • Reinforcement systems ( e.g. token charts)
  • Visual schedules/enlarged font
  • Peer Assisted activities
  • Preferred seating/multiple breaks

Please note that accommodations are determined on a case by case basis.
