Third Party Curriculum and Web Accessibility

Third Party Curriculum

The school district requires that any third-party online curriculum that is made available to enrolled students or the public complies with level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Consent Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 or any revised version of those guidelines.


Policy Statement

We are committed to ensuring our websites are accessible for all people regardless of ability or access method.  Any new or updated website produced by us will be accessible and conform to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative’s (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA.

To affirm our commitment, people designated as website content editors will be trained in the functions of web accessibility tools and techniques. Periodic compliance scans will be conducted to detect Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 violations. Violations will be corrected to the best of our ability in a timely manner.  Upon request, information contained on our website can be made available in an alternative format and when that is not possible we will employ other methods to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities. 


Our goal is to ensure that everyone has equal access to information and can fully interact with us through our website.  Our website is assessed for compliance by simulating methods employed by people with various disabilities (e.g. the use of a screen reader or navigation by keyboard only), employing validators and monitoring content on a regular basis.  When assessing our website we target accessibility standards compliant with WCAG 2.0 Level AA.  We are committed to upholding our legal obligations and believe that ensuring equal access is our ethical responsibility.

Accessibility Features

Our website makes use of widely accepted standard techniques and preferred practices to provide the highly accessible content for visitors to our website.  These include, but are not limited to, the characteristics of usability for screen readers, keyboard-only navigation, high contrast text and well-formed, linear content.
