The Education Center is designed for those responsible for publishing content on school websites to ensure that all of the content is accessible to individuals with disabilities.
It contains articles, infographics, and videos to help school administrators understand what it takes to make their school websites ADA compliant. In addition it contains guides and templates for schools to develop their own step-by-step process to put a web accessibility plan in place, according to a media release from Campus Suite.
“As digital communications continue to expand and we all become more dependent on websites for accessing and sharing information, many schools are unwittingly creating obstacles for people with disabilities,” said Jay Cooper, director of the Campus Suite Academy, in the release “This website helps answer the questions school administrators and school boards are asking about how to make their websites ADA compliant.”
Schools are joining U.S. Government agencies being required to make their websites fully accessible and ADA compliant. Website accessibility is being enforced nationally by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) U.S. Department of Education, which has jurisdiction over schools receiving assistance from the federal government, per the release.
