Why ADA Compliance Matters
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with various disabilities. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act addresses technology and web content, and how these need to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. Organizations that receive federal funding of any kind are required to abide by these standards.
How SchoolPointe Can Help
ADA Compliance is a serious issue and should not be taken lightly. Failure to meet WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) can lead to Civil Rights violations, legal fines or even loss of federal funding. Maintaining an ADA Compliant website shouldn’t be a goal you set forth for your school, it should be a standard.
At SchoolPointe we strive to be experts on ADA compliant websites. Our comprehensive ADA toolkit has been designed to take the guess work out of maintaining a compliant site and our team is prepared to guide you every step of the way.
