EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS

A campus emergency notification system is used to notify students, faculty, and staff of

important information in emergency situations. An “emergency” means a situation that

poses an immediate threat to the health or safety of someone at LRSC or community or

that significantly disrupts LRSC programs and activities, such as school closing. In case of

a campus emergency, a campus emergency notification system will send out a message by

telephone or text message.

DISABILITY SUPPORT SERVICES

LRSC affirms and recognizes its commitment to nondiscrimination on the basis of disability

and its intention to comply with all laws prohibiting such discrimination including Section

504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of

1990.

Lake Region State College provides academic support services to eligible students with

disabilities, promotes student development, and serves as a resource for disability

awareness and accommodations.

Lake Region State College defines a disability as a professionally verified condition which

substantially limits a major life activity (Section 504, ADA). This includes, but may not

be limited to cognitive disabilities, motor disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, speech

impairments, hearing impairments, and visual impairments.

To obtain disability services, a student must identify himself/herself to the Office of

Disability Support Services located in the TRiO/PowerSkills office (701-662-1642),

and provide current professional documentation of his/her specific disability. The Disability

Support Services Coordinator determines the appropriate accommodations for each

individual student and issues a notice to them with the specified accommodations. The

student, who is eligible for disability accommodations, has the responsibility to meet with

his/her instructors and provide them with the notice. Students utilizing support services

must observe the same college policies and academic regulations required of all students.

SERVICE ANIMALS AT LRSC

LRSC POLICY AND PROCEDURE MANUAL SECTION 800.33
