Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities
The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We are committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence.
We believe in integration, and we are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner. We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and by meeting our accessibility requirements under Ontario’s accessibility laws.
Our Accessibility Working Group consults with people with disabilities and community agencies to develop and review an ANUAL ACCESSIBILITY PLAN. The annual plan describes the achievements and measures that the RCCDSB has taken to implement its accessibility plan, and measures to identify, remove and prevent barriers for people with disabilities, subject to the availability of resources.
The ANNUAL ACCESSIBILITY PLAN is in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), which requires each school board to prepare an annual accessibility plan; consult with people with disabilities in the preparation of this plan; and make the plan public.
We welcome your feedback as we work together towards these important goals. You can reach us by telephone by calling 613-735-1031. Your questions and/or comments will be forwarded to the appropriate department for a response. We are open to your suggestions.
Service Disruption Notices
Our Board and school facilities are equipped with services that enhance accessibility, including service ramps and elevators. Sometimes, these services malfunction or need repair.
When an accessible service is unavailable, the Board or school facility will post a Disruption of Service Notice inside the building, as well as on their school website. This keeps everyone fully informed until service can be restored.
