WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDELINES

WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY POLICY

  • General. West Bloomfield School District (“District”) is committed to ensuring accessibility of its website for students, parents, employees, and members of the public. All pages on the District’s website will conform to the W3C WAI’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA conformance, or updated equivalents of those guidelines. The District will continue to test future releases/updates of its web site and remains committed to maintaining its compliance and serving the widest possible audience. To this end, the District will perform periodic accessibility audits of its web site.

    Report of Accessibility Issues. If any individual has difficulty accessing the information on any page of the District’s web site, they are encouraged to contact the District’s Web Accessibility Coordinator and advise accordingly. Upon notification, the District will provide the requested information in an alternate format and, as soon as reasonably practical, make the necessary improvements to make the information accessible online.
