Accommodations for Students with a Disability
To ensure accommodations are in place when classes begin, students with disabilities must complete their requests at least four weeks before the first day of classes.
You may only request services for the accommodations for which you qualify. Those qualifications are indicated on your Accommodation Plan, which is valid for one year. If you do not yet have an Accommodation Plan, please schedule a meeting with a Disability Resource Services specialist first.
Notetaking Information for Instructors
If you have received an email indicating a student in one of your classes has requested a notetaker, please discuss with the student how best to fulfill their notetaking need. There are essentially two options:
- Provide the student with a copy of your own lecture notes
- Identify a student in your class to take notes
If you will not be providing your own notes, make an in-class announcement regarding the need for a student notetaker, but please keep the student's name confidential. If no students express interest and you teach multiple sections of the same class, please make the announcement in your other classes until someone is identified to take notes.
Notetakers will receive $25 per class credit (e.g. 3 credits = $75) and a flat $25 for each additional student in the same class for which they take notes, paid in the form of a Madison College bookstore gift card. Gift cards are distributed during the last week of the semester.
