Program Policies

It is the goal of the Lansing Parks and Recreation Inclusive Recreation Program to provide a positive, safe, and fun recreation experience for all individuals. To help us provide you with the best possible experience, we have developed the following policies:
  • Appropriate social behavior is stressed during all programs. The staff and volunteers will do their best to ensure each participant's success. If a participant's behavior is detrimental to the group or to themselves (i.e., kicking, biting, hitting, spitting, self-abusing, refusal to stay with the group etc.), a parent or guardian will be called to pick up the participant immediately. If behavior continues, it may lead to removal from the program. Please call the Therapeutic Coordinator if you have any questions.
  • An individual with a disability may be removed from a program if they exhibit behavior which is considered a direct threat to other participants/staff and if this behavior cannot be reduced or eliminated through accommodations. Staff must implement strategies to address the direct threat behavior. If these strategies are not successful in reducing or eliminating the behavior, the participant may be removed from the program (with supported documentation)
  • Each program activity has a minimum and maximum number for enrollment. If the minimum numbers are not reached, the class will be cancelled. If the maximum number is reached, a waiting list will be started and those individuals will be contacted if there is an opening.
