Local college reaches agreement with Justice Department over disability barriers

Local News

The U.S. Justice Department announced Thursday that it has signed an agreement with Central Texas College of Killeen to remove barriers experienced by students with disabilities, including veterans.

The agreement requires CTC to make changes so parking, entrances, restrooms, service counters, drinking fountains and routes to and through buildings are accessible to people with disabilities.

The college will also make sure assembly areas, such as auditoriums, have wheelchair and companion seating. CTC must also implement a plan for the accessibility of sidewalks and curb cuts within their borders.

FOX44 News has reached out to Central Texas College for comment on the agreement.
