According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), State and Local Government (Title II) entities are required to develop a Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan to document compliance and were expected to provide regular updates (preferably every 4 years) to show their progress towards removing any noted barriers with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) signed July 26, 1990. The ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan are significant in that it establishes the entity’s ongoing commitment to the development and maintenance of policies, programs, and facilities that are inclusive to all of their citizens.

If you are asking yourself, “What is a Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan?” and/or “Where do I begin?”, then this webinar is for you! If you already have a Transition Plan but need clarity, then this class is also for you! Come learn more about how to conduct a self-evaluation and how to integrate the information gathered into a Transition Plan.

Join this session by expert speaker Kristi Avalos, where she will discuss how to calculate which standards will apply to your projects and know the necessary steps to ensure compliance with these accessibility requirements.

Session Highlights:

  • Gain an understanding of the ADA requirements for Title II entities.

  • Review the various Federal, State, and Construction Laws as they apply.

  • Prevent government funding from being at risk and avoid litigation.

  • Learn the steps to develop a compliant ADA Transition Plan including these key topics:

  • An optional interim step: the ADA Compliance Plan.

  • Designating an ADA Coordinator.

  • Conducting a Self-Evaluation.

  • Data collection and integration.

  • Funding, planning, and prioritizing your Transition Plan project.

  • Understanding Program Access versus Facility Compliance.

Why You Should Attend:

All public entities subject to Title II of the ADA must complete a Self-Evaluation.  For public entities that have 50 or more employees, there is also a requirement to have a Transition Plan in place that addresses structural changes that are necessary for achieving program accessibility.  This July 26, 2020 will mark the 30th anniversary of the signing of the ADA!  In other words, that’s 30 years your agency has been required to have a Transition Plan in place and provide continual updates.  If you do not have a Transition Plan or you have not updated your Transition Plan in the last 4 years, then you are at high risk of having federal funds withheld and an easy target for lawsuits. Starting and maintaining a Transition Plan can feel like a daunting task, but Kristi breaks it down into simpler steps you can implement back at your agency.
