Equal Opportunity Provider

"K-State Research and Extension is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting the, Marion County Extension Office, two weeks prior to the start of the event at 620-382-2325 or tcope@ksu.edu. Requests received after this date will be honored when it is feasible to do so.”

K-State Research and Extension and Marion County Extension strive to make programs and events accessible to all Kansans who are otherwise eligible to participate in the activities. We recognize that accommodations may be requested orally and in person, up to the date of the event. However, the timing and manner of a request potentially reduces our ability to determine a reasonable accommodation. It is essential for the Accommodation Request Form to be filled out FIRST at the local level in collaboration with a local Extension professional to launch a formal accommodations process.   

Because it can take time to plan for some accommodations, KSRE requests that this form be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the event or activity. Submitting a request for accommodation on shorter notice may reduce or limit our ability to implement the accommodations.

Request for Accommodation Form 

Upon receipt of the Accommodation Request Form and the Verification of Disability Form along with an in-person, virtual or phone intake process, an eligibility team will determine accommodations. The team may consist of KSRE and K-State Human Capital Services personnel as well as people knowledgeable about the day-to-day activities of the Extension user.

Following the eligibility meeting, persons requesting accommodations will be notified via email of the results.
