We offer compliances for national and state accessibility laws under the Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that prohibits disability discrimination by all public entities at the local and state level, including K-12 schools.
- Section 504 prohibits K-12 schools from denying participation in education or extracurriculars due to a child’s disability. It also expands the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act to protect a broader range of children with disabilities.
- Section 508 relates to electronic and information technology, and covers access to federal programs and services. Several regulations require these programs to provide accessible tech and web content. The Assistive Technology Act will not provide funding to states unless they guarantee compliance with Section 508.
- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) ensures that students with disabilities are provided a Free Appropriate Public Education that meets their individual needs.
- State boards of Education (SBOE) share common areas of jurisdiction: statewide curriculum standards; high school graduation requirements; qualifications for professional education personnel; state accountability and assessment programs; standards for accreditation of local school districts and preparation programs for teachers and administrators; the administration of federal assistance programs; and the development of rules and regulations for the administration of state programs.
State Boards of Education accessibility policies may apply to any student depending on his or her needs and whether or not the student meets the eligibility criteria. Accessible instructional materials (AIM) are allowed for any student who needs them. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires school districts to provide accessible versions of instructional materials to students who are blind or otherwise unable to use printed materials. Students with disabilities should receive materials in accessible formats at the same time as their peers receive their textbooks.
State-adopted accessible instructional materials, including braille, large-print, audio, and digital, are provided free of charge to eligible students.
