Disability Services for Adult Students

Students who have disabilities, including those with mobility limitations, speech, hearing or sight impairment, previously diagnosed learning or other disabilities covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 1990, may receive reasonable educational accommodations. If students wish to request accommodations, that request needs to be processed through the counselor’s office. Records of accommodation activity are kept separate from all admissions activity. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to confer with their counselor and instructor regarding their special educational needs.

To request accommodations, students with disabilities must go directly to the counselor. All disabilities must be verified with current supporting documentation from an appropriate professional (licensed physician, licensed psychologist, approved agency, etc.). Student’s responsibilities may include obtaining psychological/educational/medical testing and providing verifying documents.

Contact CKTC’s counselors for information to document needs and services available. Students are advised to make requests in advance of the beginning of classes. Inquiries about reasonable accommodations for a person with disabilities may be directed to the counselor and instructor.

CKTC is committed to the goal of achieving equal educational opportunities, offering full participation for students with disabilities, and providing assistance that will facilitate students’ independence and academic progress.

Student Insurance

Perkins, the act aims to increase the quality of technical education within the United States in order the help the economy. On August 12, 2006 President George W. Bush signed into law the re-authorization of the Act of 1998. The new law, the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006, was passed almost unanimously by Congress in late July 2006.
