PORTLAND PARKS & RECREATION TITLE II NOTICE

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its activities, programs, and services.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

One of the ways PP&R ensures it is effectively communicating with people with disabilities is by providing at no charge appropriate communication aids and services.

Examples of appropriate aids and services PP&R could provide include:

• accessible electronic documents

• assistive listening devices

• braille documents

• reader/transcriber

• sign language

To file a complaint under Title II, call 311 or complete the City of Portland’s Report Discrimination form: portland.gov/311/discrimination-report

MODIFICATIONS TO POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Introduction of Reasonable Modification

PP&R will reasonably modify its policies, practices, and procedures so people with disabilities can access PP&R activities, facilities, programs, and services; furthermore, PP&R will provide reasonable modifications quickly, easily, and without requiring proof of disability.

DEFINING REASONABLE MODIFICATION

A reasonable modification is a change or exception to policy, practice, or procedure that allows people with disabilities to have equal access to the activities, facilities, programs, and services offered by PP&R. Reasonable modifications must always be related to an existing disability.

When requesting a reasonable modification to a policy, practice, or procedure, an individual with a disability is not required to provide medical documentation or information about a diagnosis, but they must be able to explain how their disability relates to the requested modification.

GETTING HELP

To get help with an appropriate method of communication, requesting a modification, or to request any accommodation related to your disability, call 311 or the following form: portland.gov/311/ada-request

Whether you call 311 or complete either of the online forms, your information will be submitted to the PP&R staff best able to assist you.

Choose an Access Pass of 25, 50, 75, or 90% ongoing discount based on your financial need. Those with a lower income or higher number of family members may consider selecting a greater discount.

HOW TO USE AN ACCESS PASS

1. First, register for an Access Pass. Choose 25, 50, 75, or 90%, based on your financial need. You can register online, at any PP&R facility, or by calling the customer service center.

What to know before you SIGN UP FOR SUMMER CAMP

Access Pass

City of Portland residents can register for a free Access Pass to receive an ongoing discount of up to 90%, which can be applied to camps (as well as admission to recreation centers and pools, classes, lessons, and other registered activities). The pass is valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment. No proof of income is required. Your Access Pass will automatically apply to eligible activities for 12 months.

Register online at portland.gov/parks/discount, in-person, or over the phone.

Payment Plans

You may pay the entire balance or make a down payment of at least 20% for each camp you register for. If you are using PP&R’s Pay What You Can discount, the 20% deposit should reflect the balance after the discounts have been applied. Final camp payments are due seven days before the camp start date.

To help manage payments, PP&R encourages setting up automatic credit/debit payment plans, with the final payment being due seven days before the start of each camp. You may request to not have automatic credit/debit payment plans at time of registration by speaking with a customer service representative (in person or by phone only).

Withdrawals and Refunds

Withdrawals can be processed and refunded by the customer online if they are completed more than seven days before the start of camps. With less than seven days, you will need to call or visit a recreation site or the Customer Service Center to process the withdrawal and refund. Pre-paid materials, supply fees, and admission tickets may not be refunded if the withdrawal is less than seven days from the activity start date. If you need to withdraw after camps have begun, you may request a prorated credit or refund.

Requesting Support

Inclusion Services provides accommodations for people that need any additional supports or assistance to take part in PP&R classes and activities that are in their chronological age group. Activities are done in an inclusive setting.

To request an accommodation:

1. Register for your desired activity.

2. Once registered, please complete an inclusion request form which can be found online at portland.gov/parks/air. Once Inclusion Services received the completed request form, you will be contacted by the Coordinator who will establish a support plan for the participant. Contact 971-284-5060 if you have questions.

Request for accommodations should be made a minimum of 10 business days prior to the start date of the class or program. Requests made fewer than 10 days in advance should still be submitted and all efforts will be made to provide an accommodation in a timely manner.

Portland Parks & Recreation uses ePACT to securely collect and manage critical emergency information for camps. Using ePACT replaces the need to fill out multiple paper forms and ensures we have the most up-to-date and accurate contact and medical information in case of emergency. Expect to receive one email invite per child from ePACT. To avoid duplication, one parent/guardian (one email address) should accept the invites and complete the detailed emergency record for ALL family members. Please make sure we have a good email address for you.

ABOUT MULTNOMAH ARTS CENTER

Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) provides excellent arts education in the visual, performing, and literary arts at an affordable cost to students of all ages. We offer programs in music, movement, dance, theatre, woodshop, literary arts, metal arts, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, and more. These extensive class offerings are provided by over specialized teaching artists from the region. MAC serves thousands of students regardless of ability, age, race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or financial means. Programs run year-round, and scholarships are available.

Founded in 1973, MAC is one of the largest comprehensive community arts education programs in the nation. A program of Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), MAC is a model community center, sharing and maintaining space with multiple nonprofit community service providers.

While PP&R supports the annual operation and maintenance of Multnomah Arts Center, the nonprofit MACA makes it possible to exceed expectations for a community center by raising money to provide additional scholarships, outreach, community engagement, and make art studio and program improvements.

VISUAL ARTS—FAMILY

Ceramics—Family Clay Saturday

Age 2 & up

FAMILY CLASSES

Family arts classes are designed for parents, guardians, and children to interact and participate together. Our philosophy is to honor the child’s creative impulses— focusing on process, rather than product.

• Performing Arts classes offer opportunities for children and their adults to participate together in an exploration of movement, song, and creative drama in a safe, joyful, and welcoming environment.

• Visual Arts classes provide instruction in the use of art materials and techniques and encourage each child’s individual style of visual expression. We recommend both adult and child wear grubbies as these classes can be messy. All materials are included. Clean-up is part of all MAC youth visual art classes.

Come as a family and create shapes from nature or your imagination while exploring handbuilding and sculpting. Exchange ideas and inspiration with other artists while giving form to your dreams. Add color to your creations and see how the kiln works its magic! Does not include access to the potter’s wheel. Includes glazes, firings and 3 lb. of clay. This is a family class—Adult attendance is required. Register the child only. Not for solo participants. Note: You may sign up for a single class only; however, it is necessary to sign up for a second class in order to have your work fired and glazed. (It takes approximately 1–2 weeks for your piece to dry and be fired before it is ready to glaze.)
