We want everyone who visits the Carroll Independent School District website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.
What are we doing?
Carroll Independent School District is committed to making its information and communication technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities access to electronic and information technology and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. To meet this commitment, our web pages have been designed to meet or exceed the Section 508 standards and to conform to the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA.
The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance with the law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at www.section508.gov and on our Carroll Independent School District website. The W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/.
In addition to features necessary for supporting the Section 508 standards and WCAG 2.0, section headings are used to organize content, and videos incorporate descriptive narration in addition to open captions. In developing our site, templates were subjected to automated and end-user testing. All new content is subjected to expert inspection. Template updates are checked for conformance by Carroll Independent School District’s vendor – Finalsite – before they are deployed.
All of Carroll Independent School District’s content is provided in HTML. Portable Document Format (PDF) versions are available for longer documents. One popular viewer for PDF files is Acrobat Reader. No endorsement is implied.
