Renovations for Accessibility for Disabled
As new students and staff with significant physical disabilities move to the Cobb County School District, and as new classes are established in schools which have previously had no students or staff with physical disabilities, modifications to the school facility are frequently needed. Examples include restroom adaptations, adding hot and cold running water to a classroom, door and thresh-hold modifications, handrails and ramps. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act require such modifications to permit physical access.
Access Control
School facilities need to be accessible to many people during and after normal hours. Increased Security needs require that staff members be confident that the doors, windows and locks can completely control access to each facility. This program will provide limited access to only authorized personnel, identify any person or groups in the building and when they entered as well as numerous other features not available now.
