ADA Self Evaluation & Transition Plan

Sedgwick County is dedicated to public programs, activities and services, which are free of discrimination based on disability. The following Self Evaluation and Transition Plan documents have been developed to establish in written policy Sedgwick County’s commitment to nondiscrimination based on disability and to comply fully with the letter and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Both documents have been prepared by Sedgwick County in consultation with Disability Management Consulting Group, d.b.a, ADA Accrediting & Consulting, Sedgwick County’s ADA Coordinator, and the Sedgwick County ADA Internal Compliance Team. A preliminary draft was reviewed by the Wichita/Sedgwick County Access Advisory Board (WSCAAB), and the WSCAAB also reviewed the entirety of the final draft document and provided recommendations pertaining to its language and content.

These documents were published in draft form so that the public could have the opportunity to review, comment, and participate fully in the planning process. Two public forum meetings were held in July 2008 to receive public feedback. The County then reviewed all public comments and, where appropriate or feasible, modified the documents to accommodate the public recommendations. The County Commission adopted the amended documents on October 1, 2008.

The Self-Evaluation provides a comprehensive review of County policies and procedures, with recommendations for improving program access. The Transition Plan document contains ADA surveys of all County facilities, identifying any structural modifications necessary for the removal of barriers to program accessibility. Together, these documents are intended to provide a plan for ensuring accessibility to Sedgwick County’s programs, services, and facilities. Please note that hyperlinks within the document are not active because to do so would create a file too large for public dissemination.

Please direct all Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan comments to Lindsey Mahoney, Sedgwick County ADA Coordinator. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to view these documents, should contact the Sedgwick County ADA Coordinator.
