ADA legislation is divided into five separate titles, with Title I relating to employment and  Title II directly relating to public schools. Title II provides guideline on general nondiscrimination, integration, effective communication, building accessibility, program accessibility, web accessibility, emergency preparedness, and more.

Francis Howell School District is dedicated to providing students, parents, and members of the community with disabilities with accessible access to programs, buildings, and communication outlets. At FHSD, the ADA Advisory Committee meets to self-evaluate the District and provide an action plan for any potential issues. The overall goal of the committee is to provide guidance on District activity and purchases and ensure that FHSD is accessible to all students, staff, and patrons.
