In keeping with Napa Valley's policy on providing equal access to individuals with disabilities, instructors are strongly encouraged to include a statement on their syllabus informing students that academic accommodations on the basis of disability can be provided if the students follows protocol as described. The following statement contains all of the elements that should be present. Instructors may want to make changes on style preference or particular course content. Instructors who want further consultation in developing this statement can contact the Associate Dean of the DSPS at 707-256-7345. It is also strongly recommended you also read this statement to the students at the start of each semester reviewing course policies.
To obtain disability-related academic accommodations based on the impact of a learning disability or any other types of disability should contact the Disability Support Programs & Services (DSPS) as early as possible in the semester. A certificated staff will review your needs and determine the appropriate academic accommodations. All information and documentation is confidential. To contact DSPS you may:
- Email DSPS at email@example.com
- Visit DSPS in the McCarthy Library, Room 1762
- Call DSPS at 707-256-7345
If you already have an accommodation notification from DSPS, please contact me privately to discuss your needs.
