A Resolution to Accept the Disability Services Board’s Needs Assessment


Topic Description:


The Code of Virginia mandates several duties of local Disability Services Boards.  One of these duties is to conduct and develop a Needs Assessment Report to identify and address the needs and priorities of citizens with physical and/or sensory disabilities.  This Report will be filed with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Rehabilitative Services, Office of Disability Services Boards.  Copies of the Report will be distributed to public libraries and other related agencies to fulfill the mandate.


The Disability Services Board members have unanimously recommended endorsement of the attached 2005-2006 Needs Assessment Report.  The Disability Services Board recommends that the Board of Supervisors endorse the 2005-2006 Needs Assessment Report and direct staff to distribute copies to libraries and related agencies.
