The Tipton Community School District does not discriminate in its educational programs and activities on the basis of a student's disability. It has been determined that your child has a qualifying disability for which accommodations may need to be made to meet his or her individual needs as adequately as the needs of other students. It is the policy of the Tipton Community School District not to discriminate on the
basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs and its employment practices. There is a grievance procedure for processing complaints of discrimination.

If you have questions or a grievance related to this policy please contact: Dawn Siech, dawn.siech@tipton.k12.ia.us, 563-886-6121, 400 E 6th St, Tipton, IA 52772
