Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Under the ADA, a request for an accommodation can be granted to a “qualified person with a disability” which is a person who with or without reasonable accommodation, is able to perform the essential functions of the position with an impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. A reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a qualified employee with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by employees without disabilities, and does not impose an undue burden on the employer. The Boise School District’s accommodation procedures are in support of the American with Disabilities Act.
To determine if an employee would qualify for an accommodation under the ADA, and in order for a request for a job accommodation to be reviewed by the school district, employees must submit the following paperwork:
Please submit completed forms to:
Boise School District Human Resources Department
Nick Smith, Human Resources Director
8169 W. Victory Rd.
Boise, ID 83709
Once we receive the completed accommodation request and medical statement, we will work with the employee to identify whether accommodations are needed, determine if reasonable accommodations are available and implement applicable accommodation strategies.
