Simulation: ADA Mediation/ Environmental Law

The State college has the right to refuse to modify the building citing “undue hardships” as it would be too expensive (it would cost around $ 1 million).But at the same time the public entity can do reasonable modifications which would not alter the services or programs offered.( ADA Act TitleII-3.6000) “


In conclusion the State college can relocate the music classes to another building that has access rumps to be used by disabled people on the wheel chair; as long as that will not affect it the services, policies or programme offered by the college.

The College can also have the rumps constructed at the music building, it might seem expensive but it’s a worthwhile venture as more disabled wheel chair users who would have other wise wanted to teach or learn music were put off the inaccessibility of the building. At the end of it all the disabled student has the right to regular programmes at the college (therefore there is no need to have him join a special programme for the disabled), so the school should look for some reasonable modifications to accommodate him and other disabled wheel chair users in that college.

When choosing a suitable solution the public entity must give priority to the one that results in the most integrated setting appropriate to encourage interaction among its users. According to the Act since the college houses a big number of people (more than 15) it will need to provide reasonable accommodation for the disabled persons as it prohibits discrimination of people with disability in places of public accommodation(ADA act Regulation title III Code of federal regulations (7/1/94).
