FACULTY APPEAL OF REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS
Faculty members are course content experts. If needed, the SDRC may negotiate specific academic accommodations with instructors. The student is responsible, however, for providing an accommodation letter and reasonable notice that he/she is requesting accommodations. Professors will receive a list of approved accommodations via the Accommodation Letter process. If the instructors have any concerns about an approved accommodation, they should contact the SDRC Director immediately. Since federal regulations require such issues to be settled in a timely manner, professors should move quickly to make their concerns known.
If the professor and the SDRC Director are unable to reach an agreement concerning an accommodation, the SDRC Director will notify the AVPAA of the issue. The VPAA will be responsible for resolving the matter.
