So here's the scoop. My main campus I work on is (literally) a mile end to end and 2 stories. Anyway, the long story short is- I was in a car accident 3 years ago, I broke both my legs (open fracture) and now have lots of hardware and roughly 80% arthritis in those ankles. Bottom line, stairs are very very difficult. They have an elevator, but it is locked except for teachers & staff, and kids with a medical condition such as being in a wheelchair. They put a sticker on the back of their badge with a barcode, so it will scan for the elevator. So the other day, I went to the office to see about getting my badge converted to an elevator badge, and was told 'we don't give subs elevator badges'. I didn't press the issue, but I am physically disabled, I know my doctor would back me up (I even have handicap car tags). My question is, would that be considered a reasonable accommodation? I am able to do my job just fine, and can even walk pretty good. But the stairs do me in. In my mind, it would be a "reasonable" accommodation to adjust my badge to work for the elevator, because the current protocol is to find a security officer (we have 2 on the whole campus), but they are never near the elevator, and as I said- a mile wide campus. So to track one down, is often a task that gets me behind or even late on an occasion or two. I have not told them about the physical handicap, just not sure how best to approach? I will mention that the last time something similar came up, the principal called me the next week and told me I was no longer able to sub on that campus (my kids had ran ahead and another teacher had them...) because it involved stairs and lots of them. Sigh.
