The Justice Department announced today settlements with Central Texas College of Killeen, located in Killeen, Texas (CTC) and Tidewater Community College, located in Virginia Beach, Virginia (TCC), to improve access to education for students with disabilities. Under the agreements, CTC and TCC will take important steps to improve physical access for students with disabilities such as removing barriers to accessibility in buildings such as classrooms, dormitories, libraries, technology centers, and places of recreation. The agreements require CTC and TCC to make physical modifications to facilities so that parking, routes into the buildings, entrances, restrooms, service counters and drinking fountains are accessible to people with disabilities; and assembly areas have the required wheelchair and companion seating. The agreements also require these colleges to implement a plan for the accessibility of sidewalks and curb cuts within their borders.
