With regard to the West Seneca Central School District (“District”) website, www.wscschools.org, and any official District web presence developed, maintained or offered through District sources, the District is committed to complying with the provisions of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This commitment exists so that students, parents, and members of the public with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same benefits and services as those without disabilities, with equivalent ease of use.
Transition Toward Web Accessibility
The District is making every attempt to comply with the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA and the Web Accessibility Initiative’s Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0. These standards help make a website easier to navigate for people experiencing vision problems, dexterity issues, hearing limitations, and/or other neurocognitive barriers.
About Portable Document Format (PDF) Files and Microsoft Word Document (Word) Files
The District may not always be able to provide alternate text or HTML versions for many of the documents that appear on the website in PDF or Word format, but is continually seeking solutions that will bring all areas of the website up to the same level of accessibility. We will, upon request, work with any individual with a disability to provide web documents in an alternative format. If any person with a disability encounters any barriers, or is otherwise unable to access information provided on the District’s website or in any web-based resource, s/he is encouraged to contact the District through the Department of Information Technology:
