Wichita, KS 67203
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
in consultation with Disability Management Consulting Group, d.b.a,
ADA Accrediting & Consulting,
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
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
