In accordance with an agreement between the DOE and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, all individually school-created websites (those that are not hosted on schools.nyc.gov) must be accessible to persons with disabilities by the end of 2020. Additional instructions and a more detailed timeline will be shared in a future edition of Principals’ Weekly.
You must ensure that the “Statement on Accessibility” below is posted on the homepage of your school’s website by March 31, to inform people with disabilities that they may request that the webmaster or other appropriate person provide access to online information or functionality that is currently not available. For questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Statement on Accessibility: We are working to make this website easier to access for people with disabilities, and will follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. If you need assistance with a particular page or document on our current site, please contact [email@example.com] to request assistance.
