Hello,

Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.

I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.

You have rights under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 42 U.S.C. - 12101 et seq.

Educational facilities (as well as government facilities -like a Community College) are required to make reasonable accomodations so that activities at the school and sponsored by the school are available to persons who have disabilities.

The schools failure to find either a wheelchair accessible bus, or an alternative way to transport you is problematic.

You can file a complaint with the US Department of Justice at no cost to you.
