Website Accessibility for All: Practical Strategies for Meeting Compliance Requirements
As an essential communication tool, our publics rely on websites to provide key information about our schools and the business of the district. A new challenge now looms in meeting federal requirements – and for some districts addressing U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights complaints – to ensure that district and school websites are accessible to individuals with disabilities. This program will provide some insight along with practical steps and strategies for sharing online content in ways that meet these requirements.
