Many Internet users with disabilities find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. We are working hard at Wylie ISD to provide access to information that is available to all, and this goes for the website, too.
The Wylie Independent School District is aware of the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities and committed to ensuring that people with disabilities have the same access to its electronic and information technologies that are available to people without disabilities, including content made available through the use of our websites. Wylie ISD is committed to compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 and Title II. Web sites used by Wylie ISD should provide substantially similar functionality, experience, and information access to individuals with disabilities as it provides to others. Examples of information technologies covered by this policy include websites, electronic documents, and videos. To accomplish this, Wylie ISD will strive to meet or exceed the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.
If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use, please tell us about it. We intend to keep improving our accessibility - so to help us do it, send us your comments.
Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility
In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual’s ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage the development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights law that mandates the elimination of discrimination against persons with a qualifying disability. State agencies strive to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals to enable them to do the essential functions of a job. State agencies must also remove barriers to participation in state-sponsored programs, services, and activities when necessary.
Wylie ISD attempts to make its information accessible to all individuals. If you use special adaptive equipment and encounter problems when using this website, please tell us about it.
Additional accessibility resources and assistance are available at ADA.gov.
